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.

Laß Du mich stille werden, mein Herr und Gott

Representative Text

1 Laß Du mich stille werden, mein Herr und Gott,
nur Deine Stimme hören in Glück und Not;
bring alles eigne Wollen in mir zur Ruh
und meines Lebens Fragen entscheide Du!

2 Wenn ich den Weg nicht finde in dunklem Streit,
leucht mir mit ewgem Lichte durch diese Zeit!
Bin ich in Deinem Bilde dereinst erwacht,
dann rühm ich Deine Gnade: Du hast´s vollbracht.
