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.

633. Lift Him Up

1 How to reach the masses, *men of ev'ry birth,
For an answer, Jesus gave the key:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto me.”

Lift him up, lift him up;
Still he speaks from eternity:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto me.”

2 Oh! the world is hungry for the Living Bread,
Lift the Savior up for them to see;
Trust him and do not doubt the words that he said,
“I’ll draw all men unto me.” [Refrain]

3 Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew,
Preach the Gospel simple, full and free;
Prove him and you will find that promise is true,
“I’ll draw all men unto me.” [Refrain]

4 Lift him up by living as a Christian ought,
Let the world in you the Savior see;
Then men will gladly follow him who once taught,
“I’ll draw all men unto me.” [Refrain]
