We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Höchster Gott, wir danken dir

Representative Text

1. Höchster Gott, wir danken dir,
Daß du uns dein Wort gegeben,
Gieb uns Gnade, daß auch wir
Nach demselben heilig leben;
Und den GLauben also stärke,
Daß er thätig sei im Werke.

2. Unser Gott und Vater du,
Der uns lehret was wir sollen,
Schenk uns deine Gnad dazu,
Gieb zum Wissen auch das Wollen,
Laß es ferner noch gelingen,
Gieb zum Wollen das Vollbringen.

3. Gieb uns, eh wir gehn nach Haus,
Deinen väterlichen Segen,
Breite deine Hände aus,
Leite uns auf deinen Wegen,
Laß uns hier im Segen gehen,
Dort gesegnet auferstehen.
