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

Aus Erbarmen nimm mich Armen

Full Text

1 Aus Erbarmen nimm mich Armen,
nimm mich, Jesus, wie ich bin!
Dir, dem Einen, Heilgen, Reinen,
Dir gehöre ich forthin.

Herr, ich suche, Herr, ich finde
meine Ruhe nur in Dir,
gib den Segen Deinem Kinde
und bewahre Du ihn mir!

2 Auf Dich schauend, Dir vertrauend
will ich meine Straße ziehn.
Halt mich immer, laß mich nimmer,
Herr, von Deiner Seite fliehn! [Refrain]

3 Wird es trübe — Deine Liebe
leuchtet mir mit hellem Strahl.
Gott der Wahrheit und der Klarheit,
führe mich im finstern Tal! [Refrain]

4 Dir ergeben will ich leben,
will in Deinem Lichte stehn,
bis da taugen meine Augen,
Dich von Angesicht zu sehn. [Refrain]
