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.

Du Gott voll Huld und Güte

Representative 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.
