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

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]
