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 praise God's holy name,
And thank him for his love and grace,
Who to our help and rescue, came
And put an end to our distress.
2 How greatly were we terrified,
When we began to feel the rod;
Death threat'ned us on ev'ry side,
As the just punishments of god.
2 We were distress'd on every hand,
Involv'd in all the depth of woes;
When it appear'd, our guilty land
Should be destroy'd by cruel foes.
4 But thanks be to our gracious Lord;
Who freely will our sins forgive;
Who gave us not our just reward,
But spares us rebels, still to live.
5 God has restor'd our peace again,
O may it never more depart:
May we a greater peace obtain:
The peace of God within our heart.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLIV
