Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Du Gott voll Huld und Güte

Full Text

1 Du Gott voll Huld und Güte.
Du bist's, der stets so reichlich gibt,
Dein Herz wird niemals müde.
Und wie Du liebst,
Und wie Du gibst,
Um stets uns zu beglücken,
Ist nimmer auszudrücken.

2 Ja, wahrlich, unser Glück ist groß,
Wir sind aus Dir entsprossen!
Du machtest uns – welch köstlich Los! –
Zu Deinen Hausgenossen.
Noch pilgern wir
Als Fremde hier.
Doch kann uns nichts mehr trennen,
Weil wir Dich Vater nennen.

3 O Dank für Deine Lieb' und Huld!
Dein Name sei gepriesen!
O Vater, Dank für die Geduld,
Die Du uns stets erwiesen!
Bald werden dort
Wir immerfort
Dir Lob und Ehre bringen
Und Deine Huld besingen.
