http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv108.htm#pab1_7 has this Cantata's English translation. God bless us all as we read this and learn God's Word therefrom.
Speaking of God's Word, here is today's Gospel lesson from John 16: 5 - 15, KJV.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
The Holy Spirit guides, rebukes, reproves, and comforts. He is the Spirit of Truth Who leads us into all Truth. The Holy Spirit leads us to God because He is God, the third Person of the Holy Trinity.
The 6th Movement is the 10th verse of Paul Gerhardt's 1653 hymn, "Gott Vater, sende deinen Geist." Indeed, God's spirit places our feet so that they will not stumble or get off the path to the Heaven where blessings beyond belief are to be found.
