Bach Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ
Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ (I call to You, Lord Jesus Christ), is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the chorale cantata in Leipzig for the fourth Sunday after Trinity and first performed it on 6 July 1732. The cantata text is formed by the unchanged five stanzas of Johann Agricola's hymn.
Bach composed the cantata in Leipzig as late as 1732 in order to complete his second annual cycle of chorale cantatas of 1724, which lacked a cantata for the Fourth Sunday after Trinity because that Sunday had been the Feast of Visitation in 1724, celebrated then by Meine Seel erhebt den Herren.
