Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (From the depths I call, Lord, to thee), BWV 131, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed it in Mühlhausen in either 1707 or 1708, which makes it one of Bach's earliest cantatas. The text is based on Psalm 130.

A note on the score of the cantata indicates that the work was commissioned by Georg Christian Eilmar, minister of the Marienkirche (St Mary's church) in Mühlhausen. This allows the work to be dated to 1707–08, the period Bach was employed as organist at another of Mühlhausen's churches, Divi Blasii. Bach was only 22 when he arrived in the town, but his talent as a composer was recognised, and he wrote other cantatas while living there. Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir has been described as possibly Bach's first surviving cantata, on the assumption that it was composed not long after arrival.

The libretto is based on Psalm 130, one of the penitential psalms. The incipit of the psalm, "Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir", gives the cantata its name. The anonymous librettist, possibly Eilmar, includes in two of the movements verses from Herr Jesu Christ, du höchstes Gut, a Lutheran chorale by Bartholomäus Ringwaldt.

In his Bach Cantata Pilgrimage, Sir John Eliot Gardiner performed and recorded the work with cantatas for the Fifth Sunday after Trinity, but is not known for sure when in the liturgical year Bach performed it, and there has been speculation that it was written for a special occasion.

The Cantata is written for oboe, violin, two violas, bassoon and basso continuo,
