We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

29. Das Jesulein soll doch mein Trost

1 Das Jesulein soll doch mein Trost,
mein Heiland sein und bleiben,
der mich geliebet und erlöst,
kein G'walt soll mich abtreiben:
Ihm thu ich mich ganz williglich
von Herzens Grund ergeben,
es mag mir sein weh oder sein,
mag sterben oder leben.

2 Mit meinem lieben Jesulein
will ich gar woul bestehen,
wenn ich mitten durch Noth und Pein
nach Gotttes Will'n soll gehen.
Was will mir dann wohl haben
an Welt, Teufel, Tod un Sünde?
Beim Jesulein dem Heiland mein,
ich allzeit Rettung finde.

3 Auf dies mein liebes Jesulein,
will ich für Gott selbst treten,
für allen Feinden sicher sein,
mein' Seele wohl zu retten,
zum leben fein zu gehen ein,
und lieblich anzuschauen
den Heiland schön, den ich geseh'n
allhier allein im glauben.
