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.

H1Mortals, awake, with angels join
H2Hark! the herald angels sing
H3The gospel light rolls down the sky
H4Joy to the world, the Lord is come
H5Whene'er the angry passions rise
H6Holy Lamb, who thee confess
H7Aloud we sing the wondrous grace
H8When Jesus dwelt in mortal clay
H9Father of mercies! send thy grace
H10My dear Redeemer and my Lord
H11O sinners! could you see
H12Behold the Saviour of mankind
H13Stretch'd on the cross, the Saviour dies
H14Alas! and did my Saviour bleed
H15Yonder amazing sight! I see
H16He dies, the mighty Saviour dies!
H17Hark! 'tis the dying Saviour's cry
H18He dies! the heavens in mourning stood
H19When Jesus died, a suffering one
H20Come, and behold the Lamb of God
H21High on the cross the Saviour hung
H22O! what a sad and doleful night
H23As on the cross the Saviour hung
H24Adam, our father and our head
H25Jesus, thou art the sinner's friend
H26He dies! the friend of sinners dies!
H27With Satan, Christ had fought
H28Did Christ the Saviour kneel
H29He knelt, the Saviour knelt
H30O the sharp pangs of smarting pain
H31The Saviour comes! no outward pomp
H32Was it my sin that wounded thee
H33Warm was his heart, his faith was strong
H34Nothing save Jesus would I know
H35Hark! the herald angels say
H36Lo! the Redeemer leaves the tomb
H37Hosanna to the Prince of Light
H38He that distributes crowns and thrones
H39I sing my Saviour's wondrous death
H40Come, all harmonious tongues
H41Beyond the glittering starry sky
H42O for a shout of sacred joy
H43Our Lord is risen from the dead
H44Great God! to what a glorious height
H45O the delights, the heavenly joys
H46Jesus my all to heaven is gone
H47Come, happy souls, approach your God
H48Raise your triumphant songs
H49Hark! the glad sound, the Saviour comes
H50Hark! the Saviour of mankind
H51Lift up your eyes to th' heavenly seat
H52Prepare a thankful song
H53Come, let us lift our joyful eyes
H54Though I should seek to wash me clean
H55The Saviour! O what boundless charms
H56Jesus! in thy transporting name
H57Jesus, the heavenly lover, gave
H58How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
H59Jesus, I love thy charming name
H60Great Prophet of the ransom'd church
H61How happy is the man who hears
H62Happy the man who finds the grace
H63While in this dark and dreary land
H64He who on earth as man was known
H65Thou art the way--to thee alone
H66While my Redeemer's near
H67Infinite excellence is thine
H68Ye glittering toys of earth, adieu
H69Compared with Christ, in all beside
H70The kind Redeemer left his throne
H71There is a fountain fill'd with blood
H72Jesus, I sing thy matchless grace
H73I know that my Redeemer lives
H74Dear centre of my best soul's desires
H75With joy we meditate the grace
H76Jesus, thou heavenly Lamb
H77The Lord on high proclaims
H78Jesus, thy blood and righteousness
H79Vain are the hopes the sons of men
H80'I am the way,' the Saviour cries
H81I sing redemption through his blood
H82Lord, what is man, that thou shouldst look
H83Christ tasted death for all our race
H84Jesus, with all thy saints above
H85'Tis finished! so the Saviour cried
H86Arise, my soul, my joyful powers
H87Our bless'd Redeemer, ere he breathed
H88Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove
H89Descend from heven, immortal Dove
H90'Tis God the spirit leads
H91Why should the children of a King
H92The Spirit, like some heavenly wind
H93My God, what silken cords are thine!
H94Now may the Spirit's Holy fire
H95Come, Sacred Spirit! from above
H96Come, Holy Spirit, come
H97Great Spirit of immortal love!
H98In thy great name, O Lord, we come
H99Spirit divine! we barren prove
H100O for a thousand tongues to sing
