Analysis

Harmonies in opening chorale are very peculiar!

“Nimm von uns, Herr, du treuer Gott,” Martin Moller 1584 (verses 1,3,4,5,7 – mov’ts. 1,3,4,5,7; source for other movements)

The final verse is a direct quotation of verse 7 of Martin Moller’s 1584 hymn “Nimm von uns, Herr, du treuer Gott”. It was used also to close out BWV 90.
