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

Preis sei Dir, o Lamm

Representative Text

1 Preis sei Dir, o Lamm,
Sproß aus Davids Stamm!
Unsre Schuld hast Du gesühnet,
Trugst den Fluch, den wir verdienet.
Preis sei Dir, o Lamm,
Sproß aus Davids Stamm!

2 In welch tiefer Not
Schrieest Du zu Gott:
"Warum hast Du mich verlassen?"
O wer kann Dein Weh erfassen!
In welch tiefer Not
Schrieest Du zu Gott!

3 Du, zur Sünd' gemacht,
Sankst in Todesnacht.
Du, der keine Sünde kannte,
Der sich selbst "das Leben" nannte,
Du, zur Sünd' gemacht,
Sankst in Todesnacht.

4 Nun ist Gott geehrt,
Satans Macht zerstört,
Freigemacht unzähl'ge Scharen,
Die des Todes Beute waren.
Gott in Dir geehrt,
Satans Macht zerstört.

5 O Anbetung Dir,
Preis und Dank dafür!
Über alles hoch erhoben,
Weilest, Gottes Lamm, Du droben.
O Anbetung Dir,
Preis und Dank dafür!
