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.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Full 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!
