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.

122. Christ's Obedience and Death; or, God glorified, and Sinners saved

1 Father, I sing thy wond'rous Grace,
I bless my Saviour's Name;
He bought Salvation for the Poor,
And bore the Sinner's Shame.

2 His deep Distress has rais'd us high,
His Duty and his zeal
Fulfill'd the Law which Mortals broke,
And finish'd all thy Will.

3 His dying Groans, his living Songs,
Shall better please my GOD
Than Harp or Trumpet's solemn Sound,
Than Goats or Bullocks Blood.

4 This shall his humble Follow'rs see,
And set their Hearts at Rest;
They by his Death draw near to Thee,
And live for ever blest.

5 Let Heav'n and all that dwell on high,
To GOD their Voices raise,
While Lands and Seas assist the Sky,
And join t' advance the Praise.

6 Sion is thine, Most Holy GOD,
Thy Son shall bless her Gates;
And Glory, purchas'd by his Blood
For thy own Isr'el waits.
