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

II.CXXXIV. The Promise was divinely free

1 The Promise was divinely free,
Extensive was the Grace;
I will the God of Abra'm be,
And of his num'rous Race.

2 He said, and with a bloody Seal
Confirm'd the Words he spoke;
Long did the Sons of Abra'm feel
The sharp and painful Yoke.

3 Till God's own Son, descending low,
Gave his own Flesh to bleed;
And Gentiles taste the Blessing now,
From the hard Bondage freed.

4 The God of Abram claims our Praise,
His Promises endure;
And Christ, the Lord, in gentler Ways,
Makes the Salvation sure.
