We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

569. Jesus, Lord of Life and Glory

1 Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
bend from heav'n thy gracious ear;
while our waiting souls adore thee,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear:

Refrain:
by thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord.

2 From the depth of nature's blindness,
from the hard'ning pow'r of sin,
from all malice and unkindness,
from the pride that lurks within, [Refrain]

3 When temptation sorely presses,
In the day of Satan's pow'r,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour, [Refrain]

4 When the world around is smiling,
in the time of wealth and ease,
earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
in the day of health and peace, [Refrain]

5 In our weary hours of sickness,
in our times of grief and pain,
when we feel our mortal weakness,
when the creature's help is vain, [Refrain]

6 In the solemn hour of dying,
in the awful Judgment Day,
may our souls, on thee relying,
find thee still our rock and stay: [Refrain]
