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.

Representative Text

1 Herr, das Wort aus Deinem Munde
Ist so lieblich, süß und hold!
Gute Botschaft, frohe Kunde,
Besser als das reinste Gold!
Deine ew'gen Heilsgedanken,
Deine Liebe ohne Schranken,
Dein Herz, das sich zu uns neigt,
Hast Du völlig uns gezeigt.

2 Eins ist not — auf Dich zu hören,
Auf Dein Wort voll Huld und Heil,
Zu bewahren Deine Lehren,
Ist das allerbeste Teil.
Ja, das Wort, das Du gegeben,
Es ist Wahrheit, Geist und Leben,
Unsers Weges helles Licht,
Wer ihm folgt, der irret nicht.

3 Vater, Dank für diese Quelle,
Lebensmanna, Himmelsgab',
Diese Leuchte unsrer Seele,
Diesen guten Wanderstab!
Dank für diese Kraft der Schwachen,
Weisheit, Toren klug zu machen,
Dank für dieses Schwert im Krieg,
Dank für diesen Weg zum Sieg!
