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

Hoffnung unsrer Herzen

Full 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.
