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

88. Jesus Came

1 Jesus came and bro’t me peace,
Hope and never ending joy;
And in Him I find repose,
Which the world cannot destroy.

Vict’ry then shall all my life proclaim;
Jesus’ blood has cleansed my soul!
And He speaks in tend’rest tones to me
“Sin no more, thou art made whole.”

2 Jesus came and bro’t me love,
Love fulfilling, all commands;
Yes, I know it was for me,
For He showed two nailed-pierced hands. [Refrain]

3 Jesus came and bro’t me pow’r,
Pow’r to live and do His will;
And to lead some weaker one
Nearer to sweet Calv’ry’s hill. [Refrain]

4 Jesus came and bro’t me life,
Life forever more, the same;
And He’ll give the same to you,
Just believe on His dear Name. [Refrain]
