Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

2037. Gute Baume Bringen

1 Star whose light shines o'er me,
Rock on which I stand,
Guide who goes before me
To my fatherland,
Daily bread reviving,
Spring that cheers my heart,
Goal to which I'm striving--
All, O Lord, Thou art!

2 But for Thine upholding
Where would strength be found?
By Thine arms enfolding
Thou dost gird me round,
Faith - a shining beacon --
Hope, lest I lose heart --
Love that cannot weaken --
All, O Lord, Thou art!

3 o from morn till even
By Thy help I come,
Till the bells of heaven
Ring my welcome home.
Then new songs I'll sing Thee
From a joyful heart.
Naught have I to bring Thee --
All, O Lord, Thou art!
