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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, we implore Thee,
Let us, cleansed and purified,
Walk in grace and truth before Thee
And in Thee by faith abide,
Sanctified, sanctified
Both in body and in mind.

2 Unto us Thy Name’s sweet savor
Be as ointment poured forth;
In Thine eyes may we find favor,
Though depraved and void of worth,
While Thy banner, while Thy banner
Over us is love Divine.

3 Now the conflict is decided,
We count all things else but loss;
What with Thee our hearts divided
Now is nailed to Thy Cross;
We will glory, we will glory
In the Cross of Christ alone.

4 We will dwell on Calvary’s mountain,
Where the flocks of Zion feed,
Oft resort unto the fountain,
Opened when the Lord did bleed,
Thence deriving, Thence deriving
Grace, and life, and holiness.
