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.

Bilde unsre Herzen durch den Geist der Liebe

Representative Text

1 Bilde unsre Herzen durch den Geist der Liebe,
Daß wir, Herr, Dich lieben inniglich,
Daß wir alle stets mit sehnsuchtsvollem Triebe,
Von der Welt getrennt, erwarten Dich.
Auf Dich hofft man nicht vergebens,
Deinem Wort vertrauen wir.
Christus Jesus, Fürst des Lebens,
Komm und nimm uns auf zu Dir!
Wo, befreit von Schmerzen,
Herr, an Deinem Herzen
Alle Heil'gen ewig ruhn.

2 Komme bald, Herr Jesus! Sehnsuchtsvoller sehen
Unsre Blicke auf zum Gnadenthron.
Immer wächst das Rufen; wartend wir hier stehen,
Bis Du kommst, Herr Jesus, Gottessohn.
Geist und Braut, sie flehn nach oben,
Wie einst Du im Pilgerkleid,
Daß wir, dieser Welt enthoben,
Bei Dir sei'n in Ewigkeit.
Deinen Geist verstehst Du,
Deine Braut erhörst Du;
Jesus, komm! wir warten Dein.
