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.

Bis in den Tod sind wir, Jesus, Dein eigen

Representative Text

1 Bis in den Tod sind wir, Jesus, Dein eigen,
bis in den Tod bleibt uns, Herr, Deine Treu;
und vor der Welt wolln wir freudig bezeugen,
daß unser Leben durch Dich ward ganz neu,

da Du für uns bist am Kreuze gestorben
und uns zum Leben für Dich hast erworben.

2 Seliges Los, ohne Furcht, ohne Bangen
mit Dir zu gehn und Dein Jünger zu sein!
O Gottes Lamm, das für uns ist gegangen
bis in den Tod, in die bitterste Pein, [Refrain]

3 Bei Deinem Kreuz haben wir uns gefunden,
wo Du für uns Dich dem Tode geweiht;
bis in den Tod und auf ewig verbunden
sind wir mit Dir; denn Du hast uns befreit, [Refrain]

4 Wenn uns Gefahr und Versuchung umgeben,
hält uns doch fest die durchgrabene Hand.
Sieger im Tod nun und Sieger im Leben
sind wir durch Dich, der den Tod überwand, [Refrain]

5 Bis in den Tod sind wir, Herr, nun Dein Eigen
als eine Schar, die Dich liebt und Dir glaubt;
bis in den Tod werden wir, Herr, Dein bleiben,
siegreicher Held, auferstandenes Haupt, [Refrain]
