Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

9429. Jesus Passed Through Jericho

1 Jesus passed thro’ Jericho,
As to the cross He went;
To the sinful and the lost
The Son of God was sent;
All the suffering ones of earth,
The blind, the halt, the lame,
Called His kind compassion forth,
For unto them He came.

Savior, I believe;
Let me now my sight receive;
Christ of Jericho,
Let me Thy salvation know.

2 Jesus passed thro’ Jericho;
With joy the blind man heard;
Heeding not the world’s reproach,
He begged a healing word;
This his opportunity,
For him salvation’s day;
Lord, I would receive my sight;
Have mercy now, I pray. [Refrain]

3 Jesus passed thro’ Jericho,
And still He passeth by;
Would you from your sin be free?
To Him lift up your cry;
Call to Him in humble faith,
He cometh now this way!
Lo, the Christ of Jericho
Will save your soul today. [Refrain]
