Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Selege Hoffnung! Du kommst wieder

Representative 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!
