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.

In Gott versöhnt, in Christus neu

Representative Text

1 In Gott versöhnt, in Christus neu,
wir halten Sein Gedächtnis treu,
den Tod des Herrn verkündend frei,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.

2 Für uns gegeben ward Sein Leib.
Dies Brot dafür das Zeichen bleib
und uns zu heißer Liebe treib,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.

3 Im Todeskampfe floß Sein Blut,
Sein teures Blut kommt uns zu gut.
In diesem Wein Sein Zeugnis ruht,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.

4 Der Nacht, da Er verraten ward,
des Morgens, der Ihn offenbart,
gedenkt, wer auf den Meister harrt,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.

5 Wenn einst bei der Posaune Schall
sich öffnen rings die Gräber all,
das Feldgeschrei des Herrn erschallt,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.

6 O selge Hoffnung, himmlisch Freun,
das Herz laß unerschrocken sein!
Wir warten, Herr, im Glauben Dein,
bis daß Er kommt,
bis daß Er kommt.
