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

Full Text

1 Herr, lenke unsern Sinn empor
Und öffne gnädig jedes Ohr,
Führ' durch den Geist ins Wort uns ein
Und laß es unsre Speise sein!

2 Daß jedes Herz gesammelt sei,
Mach' uns von Sorg' und Unruh' frei,
Bewege Du des Herzens Grund
Und tu' uns Deine Gnade kund!

3 An Lebenswassern, still und rein,
Laß alle uns gelagert sein,
Gib selbst das gute, rechte Wort,
Du Leibes-Heiland, Hirt und Hort!
