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.

Christus ist vom Tod erstanden

Representative Text

1 Christus ist vom Tod erstanden!
Wer da glaubt,
hebt sein Haupt,
und wird nicht zuschanden;
ist’s doch ein lebend’ges Hoffen:
Durch den Sohn
steht zum Thron
uns der Zugang offen.

2 Christus ist vom Tod erstanden!
Weine nicht,
nun ist Licht,
nun ist Trost vorhanden.
Streckt der Tod dein Liebstes nieder:
Jesus liebt,
und Er gibt
dir die Teuren wieder.

3 Christus ist vom Tod erstanden!
Jede Stund‘
macht es kund
in den fernsten Landen.
Wort des Heils für alle Zeiten,
töne fort
durch die Ewigkeiten!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
