This chorale survives without text. The text that appears here is the one provided by editors of the Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe (BGA).

In a 1975 article entitled "Zur Echtheit einiger Choralsätze Johann Sebastian Bachs" ("On the Authenticity of Several Chorales by Johann Sebastian Bach"), Emil Platen has demonstrated a close relationship of this setting to the hymn tune’s appearance in the Neu Leipziger Gesangbuch (p.640). Bach’s version is essentially an elaboration of the NLGB setting, which is also the case with BWV 433. (See Bach–Jahrbuch, Vol. 61 (1975), pp.50–61). In addition, both BWV 27.6 and 43.11 are taken directly from the NLGB (though the latter is transposed from F to G).

Speculation regarding liturgical occasion: According to Häfner, this setting may have closed the Picander–Jahrgang cantata In allen meinen Taten for the 5th Sunday after Trinity (Picander 47), using the 9th verse of the chorale text by the same name. (See NBA III/2.2 KB, p.218.)
