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. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

To donate online via PayPal or credit card, use the Calvin University secure giving site (https://calvin.quadweb.site/giving/hymnary).

If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Hin zu Jesus möcht' ich eilen

Representative Text

1 Hin zu Jesus möcht' ich eilen,
Heim zu meinem teuren Herrn!
Ewig, ewig bei Ihm weilen,
Dort, wo Sünd' und Kummer fern.

2 Möchte dieser Welt entfliehen,
Dieser Zeiten Eitelkeit,
Heimwärts, heimwärts möcht' ich ziehen
In des Lammes Herrlichkeit!

3 O mein Jesus, welch Entzücken
Wird's für meine Seele sein,
Dich verherrlicht zu erblicken,
Ewig Dir mein Lob zu weihn!

4 Komm, Herr Jesus, hör' das Flehen,
Führ die Braut zur Hochzeit ein!
Heut' noch möcht' ich zu Dir gehen,
Ewig, ewig bei Dir sein!
