Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Jesus soll die Losung sein

Representative Text

1 Jesus soll die Losung sein,
da ein neues Jahr erschienen;
Jesu Name soll allein
denen zum Paniere dienen,
die in seinem Bunde stehn
und auf seinem Wege gehn.

2 Jesu Name, Jesu Wort
soll in den Geminden schallen;
und so oft wir nach dem Ort,
der nach ihm genannt ist, wallen,
mache seines Namens Ruhm
unser Herz zum Heiligthum.

3 Unsre Wege wollen wir
nun in Jesu Namen gehen;
geht uns dieser Leitstern für,
so wird Alles wohl bestehen,
und durch diesen Gnadenschein
Alles voller Segen sein.

4 Alle Sorgen, alles Leid
soll sein Name uns versüßen;
so wird alle Bitterkeit
uns zu Honig werden müssen.
Jesu Nam sei Sonn und Schild,
welcher allen Kummer stillt.
