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.
Harry Plantinga

330. Hail, O Once Despised Jesus

1 Hail, O once despised Jesus!
Hail, O Galilean King!
You have suffered to release us,
Hope, salvation, joy to bring.
Hail, O agonizing Savior,
bearer of our sin and shame;
by your merits we find favor;
life is given through your name.

2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
all our sins on you were laid;
by almighty love anointed,
you have full atonement made.
All your people are forgiven
through the virtue of your blood;
opened is the gate of heaven;
we are reconciled to God.

3 Jesus! Heav'nly hosts adore you,
seated at your Father's side.
Crucified this world once saw you;
now in glory you abide.
There for sinners you are pleading,
And our place you now prepare,
ever for us interceding,
till in glory we appear.

4 Worship, honor, pow'r and blessing
you are worthy to receive;
loudest praises without ceasing,
right it is for us to give.
Help, O bright angelic spirits,
all your noblest anthems raise,
help us sing our Savior's merits,
help to chant Immanuel's praise.
