We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

Full 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.
