Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Jesus, the Son of God, who once

Full Text

Jesus, the Son of God, who once
for us his life resigned,
Now lives in heav’n, our great High Priest,
and never-dying friend.

Through life, through death, let us to him
with constancy adhere;
Faith shall supply new strength, and hope
shall banish ev’ry ear.

To human weakness not severe
is our High Priest above;
His heart o’erflows with tenderness,
his bowels melt with love.

146
With sympathetic feelings touched,
he knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations are,
for he has felt the same.

But though he felt temptation’s pow’r,
unconquered he remained;
Nor, ‘midst the frailty of our frame,
by sin was ever stained.

As, in the days of feeble flesh,
he poured forth cries and tears;
So, though exalted, still he feels
what ev’ry Christian bears.

Then let us, with a filial heart,
come boldly to the throne
Of grace supreme, to tell our griefs,
and all our wants make known:

That mercy we may there obtain
for sins and errors past,
And grace to help in time of need,
while days of trial last.
