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

Fass, meine Hand, Ich bin so schwach und hilflos

Full 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.
