Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Zur Heimat da droben zieht's mich aus der Welt,
die Heimat da droben allein mir gefällt.
Nichts stillt mein Sehnen, mein Herz bleibet leer,
|: dort ewig zu wohnen ist, was ich begehr. :|

2 Was beugst du dich nieder, o Seele, in mir?
Was suchst du vergebens die Ruhe allhier?
Es brausen die Wogen der Trübsal daher,
|: Oft schwanket mein Schifflein auf tobendem Meer.: |

3 Dort rinnt keine Zähre, dort wird es nicht Nacht,
dort leuchten die Sterne in himmlischer Pracht;
und was dort vor allem mein Auge entzückt,
|: ist, daß es dort ewig den Herren erblickt. :|

4 Leb wohl denn, o Erde, ich bin nur dein Gast,
behalt deine Freuden, behalt deine Last!
Es sind deine Berge und Täler gar schön;
|: doch nicht zu vergleichen den himmlischen Höh'n! :|
