Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen ("I will the cross-staff gladly carry" or "I will gladly carry the Cross"), BWV 56, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the solo cantata for bass in Leipzig for the 19th Sunday after Trinity Sunday and first performed it on 27 October 1726. The cantata is regarded as part of Bach's third annual cycle of cantatas for all occasions of the liturgical year, and one of few works for which Bach himself used the term cantata.
