We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Es wollt' uns Gott genädig sein

Es wollt' uns Gott genädig sein

Author: Martin Luther
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Es wollt' uns Gott genädig sein
nnd seinen Segen geben.
Sein Antlitz uns mit hellem Schein
erleucht' zum ew'gen Leben,
daß wir erkennen seine Werk',
und was ihm liebt auf Erden,
und Jesus Christus Heil und stärk'
bekannt den Heiden werden
und sie zu Gott bekehren.

2 So danken, Gott, und loben dich
die Heiden über alle,
und alle Welt, die freue sich
und sing' mit großem Schalle,
daß du auf Erden Richter bist,
und läßt die Sünd' nicht walten;
dein Wort die Hut und Weide ist,
die alles Volk erhalten,
in rechter Bahn zu wallen.

3 Es danke, Gott, und lobe dich
das Volk in guten Taten.
Das Land bringt Frucht und bessert sich,
dein Wort ist wohl geraten.
Uns segen Vater und der Sohn,
uns segen Gott der Heilig' Geist,
dem alle Welt die Ehre tu',
vor ihm sich fürchte allermeist.
Nun sprecht von Herzen: Amen!
