Hymnary Friends,

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.

Text Information

First Line: Behold the redeemer of men


Behold the Redeemer of man. [Passiontide.] This hymn, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, is in Rowland Hill's Collection of Hymns for Children, &c, London, 1808. It is not in the previous editions of 1790 or 1794, and may possibly be by R. Hill. As, however, no authors' names are given in the collection, and no further evidence is forthcoming, its authorship cannot be determined. It is found in several modern hymnals for Sunday Schools, as in the Leeds Sunday School Hymn Book, 1832 to 1878, No. 49, and others. [William T. Brooke] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
