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.

Welche Liebe! Jesus betet

Representative Text

1 Welche Liebe! Jesus betet.
Glaubend schauen wir empor.
Seine Mittlerstimme redet
Für uns zu des Vaters Ohr.
In den Himmel eingegangen,
Siegreich, voller Herrlichkeit,
Bleibt Sein Herz doch voll Verlangen,
Uns zu segnen allezeit.

2 Und Er betet ohn' Ermüden
Auch für unsre Seelen jetzt.
Sein Gebet bewahrt den Frieden,
Der wie Tau das Herz benetzt.
Mag der Feinde Schar auch toben,
Satan selbst uns klagen an,
Jesu Hände sind gehoben,
Wer ist, der uns schaden kann?

3 Ja, Du betest für die Deinen.
Welch Vertrauen gibt uns dies!
Was uns bitter mag erscheinen,
Wird durch dies Bewußtsein süß.
Jeden Schmerz hilfst Du uns tragen,
Jedes Leid kannst Du verstehn,
Und Du willst in allen Lagen
Stets zum Vater für uns flehn.
