We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

45. Because I was brought low

Because I was brought low,
And sin had triumphed quite,
Thou God, all good, didst bow,
And seek me in the night.

And Thou didst lift me up,
For Thou wert lifted high,
When on the Cross Thou gav’st
Thyself for man to die.

Thou Life, Immortal Life!
O, full of sympathy!
Clothed with my flesh Thou cam’st
From Thy felicity.

To burst our mortal bands,
And vanquish in the strife,
And dead, from death arise,
Crowned with immortal life.

To Father and to Son,
To Thee, blest Spirit, praise,
Here on the earth, and there
Where live the endless days.
