Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf (The Spirit gives aid to our weakness), BWV 226, is a motet by Johann Sebastian Bach, composed in Leipzig in 1729 for the funeral of Johann Heinrich Ernesti.

Bach himself noted on the score: "J. J. Motetta à doi Cori bey Beerdigung des seel. Hrn. Prof. und Rectoris Ernesti di J. S. Bach." (Jesu Juva -- Motet for two choirs for the funeral for the blessed Rector, Professor Ernesti, by J. S. Bach). Ernesti was professor of poetry at Leipzig University and director of the Thomasschule. The text is taken from the Epistle to the Romans (Romans 8:26--27) and Martin Luther's third stanza to the hymn "Komm, Heiliger Geist, Herre Gott" (1524). Ernesti himself had chosen the text from the epistle for the funeral sermon. Scholars debate if the date of the first performance (which took place in the Paulinerkirche, the university church), was 24 October, or rather 21 October, as indicated by the title page of the sermon.

"Der aber die Herzen forschet" (He, however, who examines hearts, He knows what the Spirit's intention is) is the 2nd motet from the "Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf " (BWV 226) and although originally written for two (2) four (4) part choirs (SSAATTBB), I created this arrangement for Double String Quartet (Violins, Violas & Cellos).
