Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Kirche Christi, breite, breite

Representative Text

1 Kirche Christi, breite, breite
deine Grenzen weit hinaus!
Söhne, Töchter dir zu Seite
wallen still zu deinem Haus.
Pries sei ewig deinen Toren!
Kinder werden dir geboren
wie der Morgenröte Tau,
träufelnd auf die Frühlingsau'.

2 Sieh, schon eilt die Schar der Boten,
die du ausgesendet hast,
von den Sündern, von den Toten
abzunehmen Schuld und Last.
Selig, die du schon erledigt!
Kirche Christi, ja man predigt
Großes, Herrliches in dir!
Wachse wachse für und für!

3 O von allen Völkern, Zungen
werde dir, Herr Zebaoth,
Halleluja stets gesungen,
Lob dem freuen Bundesgott!
Sammle dir aus allem Volke
eine lichte Zeugenwolke.
Ach, das alle, nah und fern,
lebten dir, Gott, unserm Herrn!
