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.

Hoffnung unsrer Herzen

Representative Text

1 Hoffnung unsrer Herzen,
Sei uns nicht mehr fern,
Heller Morgenstern!
Ach, erscheine unsern Blicken,
Laß uns bald entgegenrücken
Dir, o Gottes Lamm,
Unserm Bräutigam!
Hoffnung unsrer Herzen,
Ende aller Schmerzen!

2 Keine Ruhestätte
Ist auf dieser Erd'
Uns des Suchens wert.
Steter Kampf bleibt uns hienieden,
Nirgend find't die Seele Frieden,
Nur im Vaterhaus
Ruhn wir mit Dir aus.
Da schweigt alles Sehnen,
Fließen keine Tränen.

3 Ja, schon hier auf Erden
Stärkt uns diese Freud'
In dem Pilgerleid.
Droben aber ohne Schmerzen
Freun sich völlig unsre Herzen;
Nicht getrennet mehr,
Stets bei Dir, o Herr,
Wo kein Leid uns drücket,
Ew'ge Ruh' erquicket.
