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.
1 Children of Israel see what shade,
The cross does us afford;
It was for weary travelers made,
We thank thee for it, Lord.
2 Here let us fit, and all prepare
To sing his worthy fame;
Who to redeem us sojourned here,
Christ Jesus is his name.
3 We sing thy sufferings, wounds and blood,
The virtue of thy pain:
We sing thy griefs, thou Son of God,
Thou Lamb for sinners slain.
4 We hail thee, thou by Jews reviled,
To thee we bow the knees;
Hail! very God, the promised child,
The prophets sang of thee.
5 While others praise an unknown God,
We each will sing of thee;
"Jesus has washed me in his blood,
And lived, and died for me."
