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.

Representative Text

1 Wer kann die Sorgfalt nennen,
Die Du, o Vater, übst,
Und wer die Liebe kennen,
Womit Du stets uns liebst?
Du pflegst uns ohn' Ermüden
Und trägst uns ohne Rast.
Du schenkst uns Deinen Frieden,
Erleichterst jede Last.

2 Wir sind Dir anvertrauet
Von Jesu, unserm Herrn.
Der Glaube stets Dich schauet,
Du bist uns nimmer fern,
Und wirst uns hier bewahren
In dieser argen Welt,
Wir werden stets erfahren,
Daß Vatertreu' uns hält.

3 Dein Tun ist stets gesegnet,
Selbst wenn es hart uns scheint.
Dein Blick voll Trost begegnet
Dem, der gebeugt hier weint.
O wohl uns, daß wir stehen
In Deiner Vaterhut!
Wir können freudig gehen,
Du machst es immer gut.
