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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

1 Herr, deine Kirche danket dir!
noch wohnt dein Wort im Lande,
von deiner Gnade haben wir
noch deinen Geist zum Pfande.
Gib, das neue Kraft
dein Wort in uns schafft.
Wider Mach und Lift hilf uns,
Herr Jesu Christ, uns,
deines leibes Gliedern.

2 Laß alle, die noch draußen stehn,
Herr, deine Stimme hören,
und die noch in der Irre gehn,
Sich bald zu dir bekehren.
Du, der's Gute schafft,
Liebe gib und Kraft;
verleih tapfern Nut,
zu wagen Gut und blut
zu deines Namens Ruhme.

3 Herr, deine Kirche streitet noch;
hilf deiner Kirche siegen!
Nimm ganz von ihr der Knechtschaft Joch,
laß sie nicht unterliegen!
Fang ein Neues an,
daß auf eb'ner Bahn
uns dein's Wortes Licht
ausführ' aus dem Gericht
zu deines Himmels Freuden.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
