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.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Großer Heiland der Verlornen

Großer Heiland der Verlornen

Author: Rudolf Brockhaus, 1856-1932
Tune: BATTY (123234)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Großer Heiland der Verlornen,
Gottes heil'ges Opferlamm,
Dorngekrönt, mit Fluch beladen,
Hingst Du an des Kreuzes Stamm!

2 Dich, den Herrn, den Fürst des Lebens,
Traf der Menschen Spott und Hohn,
Dir, dem Reinen, Fleckenlosen,
Ward der Sünde bittrer Lohn.

3 Rings von Todesnacht umgeben,
Hast Du unsre Schuld gesühnt,
Still und stumm, von Gott verlassen,
Trugest Du was wir verdient.

4 Aus den Toten auferstanden,
Thronst Du als des Menschen Sohn
Jetzt zur Rechten Gottes droben –
Sünder gab Er Dir zum Lohn!

5 Großer Heiland der Verlornen!
Wer jetzt gläubig Dir vertraut,
Der wird nimmermehr zuschanden,
Hat auf Felsengrund gebaut.
