As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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.
1 All over lovely is my Lord and God,
When nail'd on Calv'ry to a Cross of Wood;
My Praise attends his Blood, his Name I'll bless,
He is my Wisdom, Strength and Righteousness.
2 Deep Floods of everlasting Wrath and Grace,
Strove which should deluge Man in Jusu's Face,
Whilst bleeding Love, hung pleading on his Brow
For Peace, and Pardon, to the Church below.
3 The Floods of Grace, now with tremendous Swell,
Drowns all our Sin, and Curse, and Fear of Hell,
Whilst from our bleeding God we still derive
Our Peace, and in his Wounds we'll ever live.
4 On us distils his Merits, Blood and Grace;
His wounded Form we'll yet by Faith embrace;
It's here! We positively cry, my God
And tremblingly with Joy we praise his Blood.
5 We in his Body our Election see,
He with himself hath made us children free;
Our elder Brother, (O the friendly Name!)
Is God Almighty,yet the slaughter'd Lamb.
6 Praise, endless Praise to thee, O Christ, be giv'n;
Praise, endless Praise to thee, thou King of Heav'n:
Ere long thy Praise shall be our whole Employ,
When thou, O Lamb, shall perfect all our Joy.Source: Christian Hymns, Poems, and Spiritual Songs: sacred to the praise of God our Saviour #II.VIII
