Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.
