Bach’s favourite chorale?
Behind the music
Or probably not, but the words may sound vaguely familiar anyway. Bach seems to have had quite a preference for this chorale. It appears in various organ arrangements like his early work BWV and he constructed a whole five-part motet around it Jesu, meine Freude, BWV It also turns up as the closing chorale in various cantatas including BWV Simple four-part chorale harmonisations like the ones Bach made for his cantatas can, of course, be used for other purposes as well. That is why these individual chorales were often gathered together in collections. This still happens even today. Dietel studied with Bach and also did a lot of copying for him. The source itself gives the music without any text. Jesu, meine Freude, meines Herzens Weide, Jesu, meine Zier, ach wie lang, ach lange ist dem Herzen bange und verlangt nach dir!

And you must be honest in your conversation with God about it. Now I try to put myself in his shoes and he has always had a problem standing firm in any decision so its hard for him to say no. We also do not allow harassment of those who post about being victims of rape, or who state that they are contemplating suicide. Every new set in our ward looks at him as fresh meat. I love him more than anything, but lately, the lack of real time together and the stress of his work impacting how I am made to feel like I'm on eggshells when we do get together almost seems like to much to bear. I got to thinking about how I and others in my ward might react if a same sex couple attended church and how those views might WILL, fingers crossed change over the next decade. I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband.
