Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

740. O Lord, You Died That All Might Live

1 O Lord, you died that all might live
And rise to see the perfect day.
The fullness of your mercy give
To this our friend for whom we pray.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

2 Lord, bless our friend who died in you,
As you have given hum/her release.
Enliven him/her since he/she was true
And give him/her everlasting peace.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

3 In your green, pleasant pastures feed
The sheep that you have summoned hence;
And by the still, cool waters lead
Your flock in loving providence.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.

4 Direct us with your arm of might,
That with our friend we may all come
To dwell within your city bright,
Jerusalem, our heavenly home.
O Lamb of God,
Redeemer blest,
Grant him/her eternal light and rest.
