Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt,
daß er seinen einigen Sohn gab,
auf daß alle, die an ihn glauben,
nicht verloren werden, sondern das ewige Leben haben.

Dann Gott hat seinen Sohn
nit gesandt in die Welte,
daß er die Welte richte,
sondern daß die Welt durch ihn selig werde.

Wer an ihn glaubet, der wird nit gericht't;
wer aber nit glaubet, der ist schon gericht't,
denn er glaubet nicht an den Namen
des eingebornen Sohnes Gottes.

H. Schütz sets stanza 1

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
