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.

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

Representative Text

1 Lobt Gott, ihr Christen allzugleich,
in seinem höchsten Thron,
sein Wort, zeigt uns sein Himmelreich,
durch Christum seinen Sohn,

2 Was er zuvor zu vieler Zeit,
auf so viel Weis und Art,
durch die Propheten ausgebreit't,
ist uns nun offenbart.

3 Sein Sohn hat uns nun selbst gelehrt
den Weg zur Seligkeit,
daß wir durch ihn zu Gott bekehrt,
einkehrn zur Himmelreich.

4 Das ist die Wahrheit und das Licht,
das ist der Morgenstern
denn was Gott zusagt, das geschicht,
er hilft von Herzen gern.

5 Und wann die ganze Welt vergeht,
so bleibt mir dieses fest,
daß Gottes Wort allein besteht,
dß mich Gott nicht verläßt.

6 Ehr sei dem Vater und den Sohn,
Ehr sei dem heilgen Geist,
gelobt sei Gott ins Himmels Thron,
mein Gott sei hochgepreist.

Author: Johann Crüger

Crüger, Johann, was born April 9, 1598, at Gross-Breese, near Guben, Brandenburg. After passing through the schools at Guben, Sorau and Breslau, the Jesuit College at Olmütz, and the Poets' school at Regensburg, he made a tour in Austria, and, in 1615, settled at Berlin. There, save for a short residence at the University of Wittenberg, in 1620, he employed himself as a private tutor till 1622. In 1622 he was appointed Cantor of St. Nicholas's Church at Berlin, and also one of the masters of the Greyfriars Gymnasium. He died at Berlin Feb. 23, 1662. Crüger wrote no hymns, although in some American hymnals he appears as "Johann Krüger, 1610,” as the author of the supposed original of C. Wesley's "Hearts of stone relent, relent" (q.v.).… Go to person page >
