Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Für alle güte sey gepreist,
Gott Vater, Sohn und heilger Giest!
Ihr bin ich zu geringe.
Vernim den dank,
Den lobgesang,
den ich dir kindlich singe.

2 Du nahmst dich meiner herzlich an
Hast grosses heut an mir gethan,

3 Herr, was ich bin, ist dein geschenk;
Der geist mit dem ich dein gedenk,
Ein ruhiges gemüthe;
Was ich vermag

4 Sey auch nach deiner lieb und macht,
Mein schutz und schirm in dieser nacht;
Vergib mir meine sünden.
Und kömmt mein tod, Herr Zebaoth,
So laß mich gnade finden.
