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.

Herr, der Du selbst das Leben

Herr, der Du selbst das Leben

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Herr, der Du selbst das Leben,
der Weg, die Wahrheit bist,
Du wollst den Kindern geben
Dein Heil, Herr Jesus Christ.
Ach präge jedem Kinde
Dein Wort recht tief ins Herz,
daß es, bewahrt vor Sünde,
Dir leb in Freud und Schmerz.

2 Schreib Du ins Buch des Leben,
einst ihre Namen ein,
und laß sie nicht vergebens
Dir anbefohlen sein!
Herr, der Du selbst das Leben,
der Weg, die Wahrheit bist,
noch vielen wollst Du geben
Dein Heil, Herr Jesus Christ.
