We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

O Herr send Deinen Engel zu

O Herr send Deinen Engel zu

Representative Text

1 O Herr! send' Deinen Engel zu
uns Deinen schwachen Kindern,
auf das der Satan spät und früh
kein' Macht an uns mög' finden,
der täglich als ein grimm'ger Bär
mit seinem Mord geht um uns her,
uns Arme zu verschlingen.

2 Er woll't uns gern, wenn er nur könnt',
mit falscher Lehr' beschmieren,
oder in Angst und grobe Sünd'
und in Verdammniß fuhren;
Du aber, Herr,ihm widersteh;
und wirf ihn selber in das Weh,
darein er uns will stoßen.

3 O Christ! Du starker Michael,
Gott gleich an Kraft und Ehren,,
hilf doch den Bergen Israel,
die man thut hoch versehren
mit falscher Lehre, Spott und Hohn:
komm doch einmal von Deinem thron,
und schaff' den Deinen Friede.

Bartholomew Ringwaldt was born at Frankfort-on-the-Oder, in 1530, and was a Lutheran pastor at Langfield, in Prussia, where he died, 1598. His hymns resemble Luther's in their simplicity and power. Several of them were written to comfort himself and others in the sufferings they endured from famine, pestilence, fire and floods. In 1581, he published "Hymns for the Sundays and Festivals of the whole Year." --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
