Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full 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.
