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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Blicke nur auf Jesus, wende dich Ihm zu

Full Text

1 Blicke nur auf Jesus, wende dich Ihm zu!
Der für dich gelitten, gibt dir Fried und Ruh.
Er trug deine Schmerzen, alle deine Schuld.
Blicke nur auf Jesus, traue Seiner Huld!

2 Blicke nur auf Jesus mitten in dem Streit!
Wird der Kampf auch heißer, Hilfe ist bereit.
Scheint der Feind auch mächtig, deine Kraft nur klein,
blicke nur auf Jesus, Sein Sieg ist auch dein!

3 Blicke nur auf Jesus bei des Tages Last,
denn zu allen Stunden findst bei Ihm du Rast!
Und in jeder Lage steht Sein Rat bereit.
Blicke nur auf Jesus, folg Ihm allezeit!
