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.

Anbetung Dir, dem Lamme

Representative 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!
