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. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

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!
