Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Schau auf uns hernieder

Full Text

1 Schau auf uns hernieder,
O Du treuer Hort!
Lehr' uns durch Dein Wort.
Mehre in uns Deine Gnade,
Daß wir auf dem Pilgerpfade
Wandeln Dir zum Ruhm,
Als Dein Eigentum,
Willig und ergeben
Dir allein nur leben.

2 Du kennst unsre Herzen,
Du kennst jede Not,
O Du treuer Gott!
Wo der Menschen Hilf' zu Ende,
Bleiben mächtig Deine Hände.
Und Du läßt uns nicht,
Bleibst uns Schirm und Licht,
Führst durch Kampf und Leiden
Uns zu ew'gen Freuden.
