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. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

Deine Kirche wartet noch

Representative Text

1 Deine Kirche wartet noch,
Sehnet sich nach oben,
Wo sie, frei von allem Joch,
Dich wird schauend loben.
Sie ist fremd und einsam hier,
Von der Welt geschieden.
Doch, o Jesu, Du bleibst ihr,
Leitest sie in Frieden.

2 Ihre Ruhestätt' ist da,
Wo kein Feind sie störet,
Wo sie, Dir auf ewig nah',
Keine Klage höret.
Wo kein Glied vom Glied sich trennt,
Wo kein Herz erkaltet,
Wo man Liebe völlig kennt,
Wo nur Liebe waltet.

3 Komm, Du heller Morgenstern,
Bleibe nicht mehr lange!
O wir sehn Dein Kommen gern,
Hier wird uns oft bange.
Doch Du lässt uns nie allein –
Stärke dies Vertrauen –
Bis Du selbst uns führest heim,
Bis wir dort Dich schauen.
