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.

Wenn im Menschenleben Jahr um Jahr entflieht

Wenn im Menschenleben Jahr um Jahr entflieht

Author: Annie von Viebahn, 1884-1931
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Wenn im Menschenleben Jahr um Jahr entflieht
und das Auge fragend in die Zukunft sieht,

2 gibt's doch eine Brücke, die durch's Nebelgrauen
uns hinüberleitet, und sie heißt Vertrauen!

3 Dünkte sie uns manchmal wie ein schmaler Steg,
endete sie immer auf dem rechten Weg.

4 Ach, zwei starke Arme breiteten sich doch
über unser Leben — warum graut uns noch?

5 Ohne in die Tiefe unter uns zu schaun,
laßt uns fröhlich wagen, Jesus zu vertraun!
