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.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

Du hast uns lieb, Du treuer Gott und Vater

Representative 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.
