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.

To donate online via PayPal or credit card, use the Calvin University secure giving site (https://calvin.quadweb.site/giving/hymnary).

Jesus Du, Jesus Du

Representative Text

1 Jesus Du, Jesus Du!
Du bist meiner Seele Ruh'!
Bist mein Trost auf meiner Reise,
meine Kraft und meine Speise,
führst dem Vaterhaus mich zu,
führst dem Vaterhaus mich zu.

2 Inniglich, inniglich
sehnet meine Seele sich!
O wann werd' ich zu Dir kommen,
wo ich, dieser Welt entnommen,
schaue, o mein Jesu, Dich?
schaue, o mein Jesu, Dich?

3 Nicht mehr lang, nicht mehr lang,
o welch himmlisch froher Klang!
Bald werd' ich Dich schauend loben,
Herr, mit allen Heil'gen droben.
Dann tönt ew'ger Lobgesang,
dann tönt ew'ger Lobgesang.

4 Was wird's sein,
was wird's sein, führest
Du mich droben ein!
Wo nicht Sünd' und Welt mehr störet,
Nie ein Seufzer wird gehöret, –
ewig werd' ich bei Dir sein,
ewig werd' ich bei Dir sein!
