Hymnary Friends,

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. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

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

Herr, Du hast überwunden

Full Text

1 Herr, Du hast überwunden
Des Feindes Macht und Spott.
Wir haben Heil gefunden,
Mit uns ist unser Gott.

2 Der Fried' ist uns erstritten,
Uns quälet Furcht nicht mehr,
Du hast für uns gelitten.
Anbetung Dir und Ehr'!

3 In Deines Grabes Staube
Liegt unsre Schuld bedeckt,
Und froh bekennt der Glaube,
Daß uns kein Feind mehr schreckt.

4 Auch kann uns nichts mehr scheiden
Von Deiner Lieb', o Herr,
Nicht Schmach, noch Kampf, noch Leiden.
O Dir sei Preis und Ehr'!
