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.

Der Glaube macht allein gerecht

Der Glaube macht allein gerecht

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Der Glaube macht allein gerecht
durch Christum, der's erworben;
kein Werk erwirbt das Himmelreich,
weil All's an uns verdorben;
doch ist ohn Lieb der Glaube todt;
drum willst du meiden ewge Noth,
thu Buße, glaub und liebe.

2 Die Liebe sei des Nächsten Knecht,
die thu aus gutem Herzen
dabei nur glaube recht und schlecht,
das blos durch Christi Schmerzen
und seinen tod du seist gerecht,
und flieh, zu sein der Sünden Knecht;
Gott woll uns wohl bekehren!
