Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

21. Is this Jesus, then, the Lord

1 Is this Jesus, then, the Lord,
Promised since the world began?
Ask the blind to sight restored,
Ask the lame who leaped and ran;

2 Ask the once loathed leper clean,
Ask the dead to life restored:
They will tell thee Christ hath been,--
Christ will ever be--the Lord.

3 Say thou, poor man, hath not He,
As the prophet spake of old,
Preached His Gospel unto thee?
Is not this the Christ foretold?

4 Come unto Him, all ye meek,
Shun not of His cross the shame:
Blest all they His love who seek,
Bearing witness to His Name.
