The chorale melody was—and is—more familiar as the tune of another hymn. In the cantata version an alto soloist sings the words ‘Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth’ from Lobe den Herren. The cantata (No 137) was first performed on the twelfth Sunday after Trinity in 1725, and the violin obbligato (or organ right hand) may portray the ‘eagles’ wings’ of the text, an image whose biblical resonances relate to Advent (Isaiah) and the Promised Land (Exodus).

Die Choralmelodie war—und ist—als Melodie einer anderen Hymne eher bekannt. In der Kantatenversion singt ein Altsolo die Worte ‘Lobet den Herrn, der über allem so wunderbar herrscht’ aus Lobet den Herrn. Die Kantate (Nr. 137) wurde erstmals am zwölften Sonntag nach Trinitatis im Jahr 1725 gespielt, und die obligate Violine (oder die rechte Hand der Orgel) mag die ‘Adlerflügel’ des Textes porträtieren, ein Bild, dessen biblische Resonanz dem Advent (Jesaja) und dem Gelobten Land (2. Buch Mose) entspricht.
