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 hast uns lieb, Du treuer Gott und Vater

Full Text

1 Du hast uns lieb, Du treuer Gott und Vater,
Wie nie ein Mensch geliebt.
Du hast uns lieb! selbst nicht im Mutterherzen
Es solche Liebe gibt.

2 Du hast uns lieb! – Den Sohn, den eingebornen,
Gabst Du aus Deinem Schoß.
Du hast uns lieb, unwürdig, wie wir waren,
Und sündig, arm und bloß.

3 Du hast uns lieb! Mit Kleidern ew'gen Heiles
Hast Du uns angetan;
Du hast uns lieb! – als vielgeliebte Kinder
Anbetend wir Dir nahn.

4 Du hast uns lieb, und Deine Liebe gossest
Du in das Herz uns aus.
Du hast uns lieb! drum eilen frohen Mutes
Wir heim ins Vaterhaus.
