Text known to Bach (Weimar 1713):

Wo soll ich fliehen hin/
weil ich beschweret bin/
mit viel und grossen Sünden/
wo kan ich Rettung finden?
Wenn alle Welt herkäme/
mein Angst sie nicht wegnehme.


Whither shall I fly,
for I am burdened
with many and great sins?
Where can I find salvation?
If everybody in the world came to help me
they would not take away my anguish.

Melody: ? Caspar von Stieler (1632-1707) – Jena 1679
Text: Johann Heermann (1585-1647) – Leipzig 1630
