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.

Jesus, meine Sonne in der dunklen Nacht

Jesus, meine Sonne in der dunklen Nacht

Author: Caroline Rhiem
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Jesus, meine Sonne in der dunklen Nacht,
Jesus, meine Wonne, wenn mir Freude lacht.
Jesus, meine Liebe, Du, mein einzig Glück,
nimmer wend ich wieder von Dir weg den Blick.

2 Du hast meine Seele wunderbar erquickt,
deines Geistes Siegel in mich eingedrückt.
Deinen tiefen Frieden spür ich täglich nun,
darf in deiner Liebe Stund um Stunde ruhn.

3 In der Welt Gedränge, in der Sünde Streit
sind, Herr, deine Siege stets für mich bereit.
Du willst für mich kämpfen, ich darf stille sein,
mich in Deine Gnade hüllen fester ein.

4 Welch ein selig Leben in der dunklen Welt!
Fröhlich kann ich singen, weil mich Jesus hält.
Niemand kann mich reißen, Herr, aus Deiner Hand,
bis Du mich aus Gnaden bringst ins Heimatland.
