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 zu des Vaters rechten sitzt

Der zu des Vaters rechten sitzt

Author: Philipp Friederich Hiller
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Der zu des Vaters Rechten sitzt,
der bittest für die Seinen:
so find sie vor dem Zorn beschützt,
getröstet in dein Weinen,
befreit von Noth,
erlöst vom Tod,
und dürfen nach dem Sterben
mit ihrem Heiland erben.

2 Herr Jesu, dir gebührt der Ruhm,
nur du kannst für uns beten;
du Priester in dem Heiligthum,
du kannst dein Volk vertreten;
kein anders Blut
ist und zu gut
zum Opfer fe geflossen,
du hast's für uns vergossen.

3 Daher du die Versohnung bist
dein Vater, der Gerechte;
da, was sonst Mensch heißt, Sünder ist,
und Engel deine Knechte;
du bist der Sohn,
du hast den Thron,
und nur in deinem Namen ist
die Verheißung Amen.

4 Wir ehren dich, wir glauben dir;
dein Volk, das du erworben,
jauchzt dir ein Hallelujah für,
weil du für uns gestorben.
Ach bitte du
nur immerzu
für uns aus diesem Grunde,
auch in der Todesstunde.
