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,
Harry Plantinga

Anbetung Dir, dem Lamme

Full Text

1 Anbetung Dir, dem Lamme,
Das unsre Sünden trug.
Dort an des Kreuzes Stamme
Wardst Du für uns ein Fluch!
Preis Dir, daß Du gegeben
In heißer Liebesglut
Für uns Dein teures Leben
Und Dein Versöhnungsblut!

2 Wer könnte je ergründen
Die Tiefen und die Höhn,
Und wer Verständnis finden
Von dem, was dort geschehn!
Du, alles Lebens Quelle,
Des ew'gen Gottes Sohn,
Du hast an unsrer Stelle
Geschmeckt der Sünde Lohn!

3 Preis und Anbetung bringen
Wir Dir, o Herr, dafür!
Von Deiner Liebe singen
In Schwachheit wir schon hier.
Was wird es sein, wenn droben,
In Deiner Herrlichkeit,
Dich jeder Mund wird loben,
O Lamm, in Ewigkeit!
