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.

Gott, Dein Ruhm sei hoch erhoben

Gott, Dein Ruhm sei hoch erhoben

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Gott, Dein Ruhm sei hoch erhoben,
Deine Weisheit, Lieb' und Macht!
Nimmer kann ich g'nug Dich loben,
Daß Du so an mich gedacht.
Meine Sünden sind vergeben,
Jesus starb für meine Schuld, –
O welch göttlich große Huld!
In dem Sohn hab' ich das Leben.
Liebe, ach! wie liebst Du mich!
Lehr' mich ganz erkennen Dich.

2 Du hast mir den Geist gegeben,
Nicht steh' ich verwaiset hier,
Darf als Kind den Blick erheben,
Gott, mein Vater, stets zu Dir.
Du erhörest gern mein Flehen,
Stehst in jeder Not mir bei,
Sorgst so väterlich, so treu,
Läßt nichts Böses mir geschehen.
Liebe, ach! wie liebst Du mich!
Lehr' mich ganz erkennen Dich.
