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 Did our Immanuel die for us,
To save such poor rebellious men?
Did he display his pity thus,
That we might come to God again?
2 All human language wants a name,
For this unfathomed wondrous love:
This pure immortal fervent flame,
Sprang only from the God above.
3 What can we add? Our speech is faint;
We sink beneath the ponderous load:
This love no eloquence can paint;
'Tis grand! 'tis worthy of a God.
4 O'erwhelmed with this abyss of love,
We stand astonished at the grace,
That brought the Savior from above,
To die for all the fallen race!
5 Did our Immanuel die for us?
What more can be by sounds expressed?
For sinners Christ was made a curse;
Eternity must tell the rest.
