Man singet mit Freuden vom Sieg (There are joyful songs of victory), BWV 149, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the work in Leipzig for the Feast of Saint Michael and first performed it on 29 September 1728 or 1729. It is his third and last of his extant cantatas for the feast. The topic is derived from the prescribed readings for the Sunday from the Book of Revelation, Michael fighting the dragon. The libretto was written by Picander and published in a 1728/29 volume of cantata texts. He included as the first movement two verses from Psalm 118 and as the closing chorale the third stanza of Martin Schalling's hymn "Herzlich lieb hab ich dich, o Herr". The text focuses on the guardian angels, which the chorale mentions specifically for the situation of death.

The text focuses on the guardian angels, which the chorale mentions specifically for the situation of death. Bach structured the work in seven movements and scored it festively with four vocal parts and a Baroque orchestra of three trumpets, timpani, three oboes, bassoon, strings and continuo. He derived the opening chorus from his Hunting Cantata, composed already in 1713. (en)
