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

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 thro' 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.
