Es lebe der König, der Vater im Lande (Long live the King, the father of the country), BWV Anh 11, is a secular cantata by J. S. Bach. He composed it in Leipzig and first performed it on 3 August 1732 in Leipzig. The music is lost.[1] The first movement was likely used as a model for the opening chorus of Preise dein Glücke, gesegnetes Sachsen, BWV 215.[2]
