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.

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

Gottes Sohn! - Anbetend schauen

Representative Text

1 Gottes Sohn! - Anbetend schauen
Wir in Dir des Vaters Bild,
Gottes Herrlichkeit und Gnade,
Seine Liebe unverhüllt.
Staunend beugen wir uns nieder,
Singen Dir, dem Herrn der Welt,
Der das ganze All erhält,
Unsre Lob und Dankeslieder,
Preisen mit der Schöpfung laut
Dich, o Herr, der sie erbaut.

2 Gottes Lamm! - Du kamst hernieder
Aus des Vaters Herrlichkeit,
Schrittest durch die Welt der Sünde,
Segen spendend, Gott geweiht.
Littest stille, ohne Klagen,
Ließest Dich für unsre Schuld –
O der wunderbaren Huld! –
Willig an das Fluchholz schlagen.
Dank Dir, teures Opferlamm,
Gottes Sohn am Kreuzesstamm!

3 Gottes Lamm! - Jetzt weilst Du droben
Ruhmgekröhnt auf Gottes Thron.
Siegreich hast Du überwunden
Satans Macht und Menschenhohn.
Jauchzend singen heil'ge Chöre,
Seit das große Werk vollbracht:
Dir, dem Lamme, sei gebracht
Macht und Herrlichkeit und Ehre!
Und wir stimmen freudig ein:
Du bist würdig, Du allein!
