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.

1In sacred pages it is said
2Sin has undone the sons of men
3Sin has undone our wretched race
4Remember, Lord, our sinful race
5Rebellious man how hast thou fell
6How great the love of God must be
7Thanks be to God for what he's done
8Did Christ the great Messiah come
9Salvation, O the name of love
10Is this the day the Savior came
11The holy prophets said
12The angels bring the tidings down
13When from the lofty heights above
14Lord, what is man that thou should mind
15Go see the meek and lowly child
16Unto ye sons of men I call
17One day as I did pass along
18O what a mournful sight I see
19'Twas you, my sins, that caused my Lord
20Did Jesus in the garden lie
21O hear the great Redeemer cry
22Behold the awful debt is paid
23Farewell, my earthly joy, farewell
24Look to the grave mine eyes and view
25Come see the humble Christian die
26An awful sight presents to view
27Is it the case that die I must
28Sweet Canaan's land when shall I see
29O death, where art thou in those days
30I'll bid all earthly things adieu
31It looks like my Redeemer's come
32Death strikes the blow and we are gone
33Come, all my friends and dear relations
34Come, all ye [you] tender-hearted fathers
35Where are our fathers, they are gone
36Lord, must I go down to the grave
37Eternal things are surely nigh
38Look down O Lord upon a worm
39O Lord, I feel most awful strange
40O what an awful sight to see
41How soon the tyrant, Lord has come
42Why do you mourn my neighbors
43Lord, thou hast come, we do believe
44Dear Jesus didst thou not bestow
45O Lord into thy garden come
46O teach me Savior, how to pray
47Prayer is a duty Christians owe
48Lord, may thy little flock today
49When I into my closet go
50Dear Jesus, as we've met today
51We hope, dear Master, we have come
52O blessed Jesus, come today
53O blessed Lord and Savior kind
54Vain man, what are thy thoughts today
55All things are ready, come today
56Ye nations of the earth, return
57'Twas on the last day of the feast
58Ye dying sons of Adam see
59'Tis but a few and hasty days
60How short and hasty is the race
61Ye sinners of a fallen race
62Awake, ye sleeping souls, awake
63Lord, if old sinners will go on
64Now is the time to seek the Lord
65Awake, O sinner, do awake
66Within thy sanctuary, Lord
67Continue, Lord, thy faithful care
68We now have come to hear thy word
69Now we surround thy board, O Lord
70Come to the Savior's table, come
71When the dear body of our Lord
72See Jesus rise from Joseph's tomb
73Behold the tomb, and see the ground
74Go teach the [all] nations and baptize
75The gospel brings the joyful news
76Salvation, O the pleasing news
77Pity the nations, O our God, Constrain the earth
78Ye ministers of Jesus go
79Look sinner to the gospel pole
80When the disciples went to preach
81For Zion's sake hold not thy peace
82Behold the lovely Son of God
83From yonder thicket I behold
84Ye servants of the Lord
85The Lord he bid old Jonah go
86Go, preach my gospel to the por
87Hark, listen to the trumpet's sound
88Go Mary quick, and meet your Lord
89Hark! how the Gospel trumpet blows
90O precious Gospel, hear the sound
91O Christians, why are you so sad
92My soul, why art thou thus cast down
93Ye languishing and needy poor
94My soul, ascend in lofty flight
95Be patient yet a few more years
96Kind are the words of Christ, my Lord
97My soul, ascend on high
98Ye mourning pilgrims ask the way
99Salvation, O the sound most sweet
100Ye stupid sons of Zion rise
