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.

Stille unsers Herzens Sehnen

Representative Text

1 Stille unsers Herzens Sehnen,
Herr Jesus, komm!
Führ' uns aus dem Land der Tränen,
Herr Jesus, komm!
Hier, wo Feinde uns umringen,
Satan uns legt tausend Schlingen,
Will Dein Lob nur schwach erklingen.
Herr Jesus, komm!

2 Ganz zertrennt die Heil'gen stehen,
Herr Jesus, komm!
Einheit ist nicht mehr zu sehen.
Herr Jesus, komm!
Satans List hat sie zerstöret,
Sünd' und Welt manch Herz betöret,
Ach, wie sehr wirst Du entehret!
Herr Jesus, komm!

3 Dann wird alle Schwachheit enden,
Herr Jesus, komm!
Nie ein Herz von Dir sich wenden,
Herr Jesus, komm!
Jeder wird Dich froh begrüßen,
Beten an zu Deinen Füßen
Und in ew'gem Lob zerfließen.
Herr Jesus, komm!

4 Herrlich wirst Du dann erscheinen,
Herr Jesus, komm!
In der Mitte all der Deinen.
Herr Jesus, komm!
Erd' und Himmel werden spenden
Ruhm und Preis an allen Enden.
O welch seliges Vollenden!
Herr Jesus, komm!
