Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Good Friday, Good Friday, thou beautiful day

Good Friday, Good Friday, thou beautiful day

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Good Friday, Good Friday, thou beautiful day,
With peace the great battle is ended;
And heaven rejoices in holy array;
Through Jesus the world is befriended!
Though earth may be dark, yet will heaven be light,
And Jesus returns to His glory and might;
the conflict on earth He has finished.

2 Good Friday, Good Friday, thou glorious day,
The heavenly hosts have united
Thy glory to sing, and triumphantly say
By Jesus all wrongs have been righted!
He suffered a shameful and sorrowful death;
His pity compelling, He gave up His breath,
And died in the place of the sinner.

3 O sinners, now come to keep holy the day,
When Jesus for sinners was offered,
And now may we faithfully love and obey
Our Lord, who so patiently suffered!
He offered his life to repay what we owed,
And God, therefore, mercy again has bestowed;
Forever He now will be gracious.

4 Ne'er suffer a day, O my heart, to pass by
On which thou for Jesus not yearnest:
Thy promise renew that in prayer thou will try
More faithful to be and more earnest.
Dear Saviour, may Thou cleanse my soul every day,
And take Thou my heart; for this only I pray,
Let me at Thy cross ever tarry.
