During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

656. Farvel, du gode gamle Aar!

1 Farvel, du gode gamle Aar!
Med Tak vi afsked tage,
Nu være glemt hvert Hjertesaar
I dine mange Dage!
Hidtil jo Herren hjulpet har;
Hvad Godt vi fik, kun Naade var,
Thi vi det ei fortjente.

2 Vær du, o Jesus Krist, vor Trøst,
Mens vi paa Jorden vandre1
Du har os med dit blod forløst,
Thi lad os med hverandre
Som Dyrekjøbte her fremgaa,
Til vi, de Store med de Smaa,
Tilsidst hos dig maa samles!

3 Da kommer ret det Glædens Aar,
Hvor Graad ei mer skal være;
En Jul, som aldrig ende faar,
Da holdes Krist til Ære;
Da skal vi se ham, som han er,
O, dette Haab os trøste her
I hvert er Aar, vi leve!
