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

123a. Christ's Passion, and Sinners Salvation

1 Deep in our Hearts let us record
The deeper Sorrows of our Lord;
Behold the rising Billows roll,
To overwhelm his holy Soul.

2 In long Complaints he spends his Breath,
While Hosts of Hell, and Pow'rs of Death,
And all the Sons of Malice join
To execute their curst Design.

3 Yet, gracious GOD, thy Pow'r and Love
Has made the Curse a Blessing prove;
Those dreadful Suff'rings of thy Son
Atton'd for Sins which we had done.

4 The Pangs of our expiring Lord,
The Honours of thy Law restor'd;
His Sorrows made thy Justice known,
And paid for follies not his own.

5 O for his Sake our Guilt forgive,
And let the mourning Sinner live!
The Lord will hear us in his Name,
Nor shall our Hope be turn'd to Shame.
