Description:
A setting of stanza 2 of the Chorale "Wo Gott der Herr nicht bei uns hält". This tune was used by Bach many times in his Cantatas. The text is a paraphrase of Psalm 124 written by Justus Jonas, 1524. The author of the melody is unknown.

2. Was Menschen Kraft und Witz anfäht,
soll uns billig nicht schrecken;
er sitzet an der höchsten Stätt',
der wird ihr’n Rath aufdecken.
Wenn sie's auf’s Klügste greifen an,
so geht doch Gott ein’ andre Bahn;
es steht in seinen Händen.
