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

Hin zu Jesus möcht' ich eilen

Full 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!
