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.

Representative Text

1 Herr Jesus, unser Heiland Du,
Du heilges Gotteslamm,
hast uns mit Deinem eignen Blut
erlöst am Kreuzesstamm.

2 Wir rühmen Deine Liebe, Herr,
die Dir uns nah gebracht
und ihre Herrlichkeit verließ
und kam in unsre Nacht

3 und dem Verderben, unsrer Not,
hier zu begegnen kam
und im Gericht der Sünde Lohn
aus Liebe aus sich nahm.

4 Du warest reich und wurdest arm
Um unsertwillen hier,
damit, befreit von Sünd und Tod,
wir würden reich in Dir.

5 Dies grab in unsre Herzen tief
Mit ewgen Zügen ein,
damit ein Abdruck Deiner Lieb
bei uns mag sichtbar sein.
