From the Schemelli „Gesangbuch“ (No. 320), Leipzig, 1736.
The evidence shows that J. S. Bach had very little, if anything at all, to do with this chorale setting.

 

Use of the Chorale Melody by other composers:

Ernst Wiedemann (1848-1922)
Auf, auf, mein Herz, mit Freuden, for organ

Flor Peeters (1903-1986):
Auf, auf, mein Herz, mit Freuden, Partita for Organ
