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 Sabbath ist vergangen

Der Sabbath ist vergangen

Representative Text

1 Der Sabbath ist vergangen,
ich habe mein Verlangen
nach Herzenswunsch erfüllt,
Gott hat mich unterweiset,
mit Lebensbrod gespeiset
und meiner Seele Durst gestillt.

2 Gott ruht durchs Wort im Herzen:
drum leg ich ohne Schmerzen
auch meinen Leib zur Ruh:
denn allen Sündenschaden
deckt Jesus nun in Gnaden
mit seinem Purpurmantel zu.

3 O du dreieinges Wesen,
mein Geist ist schon genesen,
weil ich dein Tempel bin;
ich habe Licht vom Lichte,
dein leuchtend Angesichte
nimmt alle Finsterniß dahin.

4 Du wirst schon bei mir wachen,
und eine sonne machen
auch mitten in der Nacht;
bis bei den Cherubinen
ein Sonntag ist erschienen,
der alle Nacht zu Schanden macht.

5 Ich schlafe ganz vergnüget;
denn wo mein Herze lieget,
da ist der Engel Heer;
mich stört kein Weltgetümmel,
es träumt mir nur vom Himmel;
ach, wer doch nur bald droben wär!
