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

Rede, Herr, ich warte

Representative Text

1 Rede, Herr, ich warte
auf ein Wort von Dir;
lauschend blick ich aufwärts:
Herr, begegne mir!

2 Sprich, geliebter Meister,
jetzt, da alles still,
und sich meine Seele
zu Dir kehren will!

3 Was Du irgend redest,
o mein Heiland, Gott,
ist für meine Seele
das wahrhaftge Brot.

4 Rede, Dein Knecht höret,
rede mehr und mehr!
Mich verlangt nach Deinem
Lebenswort so sehr.

5 Um Erkenntnis Deines
Willens flehe ich;
und Dein Wohlgefallen
wirke, Herr, durch mich!

6 Daß mein Leben werde
wie ein frischer Quell,
dessen Strom nicht trüget,
dessen Wasser hell,

7 der die Müden tränket,
Durstige beglückt,
und an dem Dein Auge,
Heiland, sich erquickt.
