You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Jesus Christus unser Heiland, der den...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ueberwunden hat der Herr den Tod!
Des Menschen Sohn und Gott
Ist auferstanden!
Ein Sieger auferstanden!

Rein, entweiht von keiner Sünde nicht,
Trug er des Herrn Gericht,
Daß wir, von Sünden
Erlöst, Gott wieder finden!

Heil, Verwerfung, Tod und Leben, ist,
Dein Werk, Gott, Jesu Christ!
Du willst das Leben
Den Ueberwindern geben!

Jesucrist el nostre Salvador, que ha vençut la mort

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

El Senyor ha vençut la mort!
El fill de Déu i de l’home
ha ressuscitat!
Un vencedor ha ressuscitat!

Pur, no profanat per cap pecat,
ha executat el judici del Senyor
perquè nosaltres, redimits
del pecat, retrobem Déu!

Salvació, condemna, mort i vida són
la teva obra, Déu, Jesucrist!
Tu donaràs la vida
als vencedors!
