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.
Harry Plantinga

263. Before to His sad death He went

1 Before to His sad death He went
Jesus ordained the Sacrament. Hallelujah!

2 His flesh and blood through power divine
Is in, with, under, bread ad wine. Hallelujah!

3 The Sacrament gives grace and life
To quit ourselves like men in strife. Hallelujah!

4 Against all sin, affliction, need,
It gives us health and strength indeed. Hallelujah!

5 Lord, with this bread grant us such good;
Refresh us with Thy precious blood. Hallelujah.

6 That sills the thirst of our faint soul
And makes our spirits strong and whole. Hallelujah!

7 O Christ, grant Thou in grace that we
May now receive Thee worthily. Hallelujah!

8 Forbid it, Lord! that we receive
Thee unto judgment. Let us live! Hallelujah!
