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 Come, let us join our songs of praise
To our ascended Priest;
He entered Heaven with all our names
Engraven on His breast.
2 Below He washed our guilt away,
By His atoning blood;
Now He appears before the throne,
And pleads our cause with God.
3 Clothed with our nature still, He knows
The weakness of our frame,
And how to shield us from the foes
Which He Himself o’ercame.
4 Nor time, nor distance, e’er shall quench
The fervor of His love;
For us He died in kindness here,
For us He lives above.
5 Oh! may we ne’er forget His grace,
Nor blush to bear His name;
Still may our hearts hold fast His faith—
Our lips His praise proclaim.
