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.

Herr, Du hast überwunden

Representative 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'!
