This chorale survives without text. The text that appears here is the one provided by editors of the Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe (BGA).
This setting is a four–part realization of a two–part chorale (with figured bass) from the Schemelli Gesangbuch. The chorale appears in the Schemelli under the title "Lasset uns mit Jesu ziehen", a text by Sigmund von Birken (Betelius) (1652). (See Chorale No.18 on p.136 of NBA III/2.1) For a full listing of four–part realizations of two–part Schemelli chorales, visit Schemelli Realizations.
