Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Fass, meine Hand, Ich bin so schwach und hilflos

Representative Text

1 Faß meine Hand! Ich bin so schwach und hilflos,
und nicht ein Schritt gelingt mir ohne Dich.
Faß meine Hand, und dann, o Herr, mein Heiland,
kann Furcht vor Leiden nicht mehr ängsten mich.

2 Faß meine Hand! Und zieh mich näher zu Dir,
denn Deinem Herzen möchte nah ich sein.
Faß meine Hand, ich würde sonst abirren
vom graden Wege, ginge ich allein.

3 Faß meine Hand! Der Weg liegt dunkel vor mir!
Doch ist Dein Angesicht mir zugewandt,
und Himmelslicht erhellt den Pfad im Finstern.
So geh ich, Herr, gewiß an Deiner Hand.
