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.

Representative Text

1 Dank Dir, o Herr, daß Gold und Schätze
Und Pracht und Schönheit dieser Welt,
Daß kein Ding je mich kann ergötzen,
Das mir die Welt vor Augen stellt.

2 Mein Jesus, Du bist meine Freude,
Mein Gold, mein Schatz, mein schönstes Bild.
Nur Du bist meine Lust und Weide,
Und was mein Herz für ewig stillt.

3 Du bist allein mein Licht und Leben,
Die Wahrheit selbst, das ew'ge Wort.
Du bist der Stamm unzähl'ger Reben,
Bist meiner Seele Fels und Hort.

4 Dein Reichtum ist nicht zu ergründen,
Und Deine Treue wanket nicht;
Und alles, was in Dir zu finden,
Erbleichet und veraltet nicht.

5 Du wirst mich bald zu Dir erheben,
Mir zeigen Deine Herrlichkeit.
Ich werde ewig mit Dir leben,
Dein Antlitz schauen allezeit.
