Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.
