Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Wer, Herr Jesus, fasst Dein Lieben

Full Text

1 Wer, Herr Jesus, fasst Dein Lieben,
wer den Wert von Deinem Blut!
Liebe nur hat Dich getrieben,
selbst zu werden unser Gut.
Unsre Sünden trugest Du,
gabst in Dir uns ew'ge Ruh'.

2 Nichts kann uns von Dir mehr scheiden,
nichts kann uns verdammen mehr,
weder Tod, noch Schmach, noch Leiden,
noch des Satans mächt'ge Heer'.
Ewig sind wir, Dir zum Ruhm,
Dein erkauftes Eigentum.

3 Drum gehört Dir unser Leben,
unser Lob nur Dir allein.
Selig ist's, sich Dir ergeben,
Deinem Dienste sich zu weihn,
und — gehorsam Deinem Wort —
Dir zu folgen, treuer Hort!
