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.

Representative Text

1 Nun treten wir ins neue Jahr,
Herr Jesu, rett uns aus Gefahr;
wend ab in dieser bösen Zeit
Krieg, Theurung, Pest und alles Leid.

und uns mit Segen überschütt.
Daß solches Amen sei und wahr,
von Herzen wünscht der Christen Schaar.
