Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Glücke (I am content in my good fortune), BWV 84, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the solo cantata for soprano in Leipzig for the third Sunday before Lent, called Septuagesima. It is one of the few works called cantata today which Bach called "Cantata" himself. He had already composed two cantatas for the occasion in earlier years, Nimm, was dein ist, und gehe hin, BWV 144, in 1724 and the chorale cantata Ich hab in Gottes Herz und Sinn, BWV 92, in 1725.

As in the earlier years, the cantata text is related to the Gospel in the general way that the Christian should be content with his share of good fortune, without envy of others who may seem more fortunate. The title and the text show similarities to Picander's Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Stande ("I am content with my position"), published in 1728. It is unclear if both texts are by Picander, or if Picander based his on a former one, or if Picander's was already available at the time of the composition but was changed. As Klaus Hofmann observes, the thoughts are in the spirit of the beginning Enlightenment, "praise of frugality, of modesty with that which God has allocated to us, of satisfaction, of lack of envy towards others". The language is no longer the "rhetorical pathos of baroque poetry", but "radicality and artistry of the imagery. The language is simple and terse; it is rational rather than figurative."

Although originally scored for a soprano soloist, oboe, two violins, viola, and basso continuo, I created this arrangement for Flute, Oboe & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
