Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Selege Hoffnung! Du kommst wieder

Full Text

1 Sel'ge Hoffnung! Du kommst wieder,
Läßt die Glieder nicht zurück.
Bald verkünden neue Lieder
Droben unser ew'ges Glück.
Dann ist jeder Wunsch erfüllt,
Unser Sehnen ganz gestillt.

2 Ruhen werden dann die Glieder
Ewig dort, vereint mit Dir.
Keine Trübsal kehret wieder,
Keine Träne fließt wie hier.
Ewig fern ist alles Leid,
Jedes Herz füllt Seligkeit.

3 Und anbetend wird dann singen
Deine teu'r erkaufte Schar,
Dir, dem Lamme, Ehre bringen,
Gott erheben immerdar.
Welch ein Glück, bei Dir zu sein!
Komm, o Jesu, führ' uns ein!
