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

153. Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace

1 Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace,
True God and Man art Thou!
Mighty to help in life and death,
O hear and help us now!
'Tis through Thy name alone we claim
The mercy of Thy Father!

2 The times are sore and perilous
With heavy woes and wars,
Whence no man can deliver us
But Thou! Oh plead our cause,
That God may lay His wrath away,
Nor deal with us in anger!

3 We have deserved, and patiently
Would bear, whate'er Thou wilt,
But grace is mightier far with Thee
Than all our sin and guilt;
Forgive us then, dear Lord, again,
Thy love is ever faithful.
