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 Great are the mercies of our God,
Far more than men or angels know;
To shew what God on man bestow'd,
Is more than all the world can do.
2 To save the wretched sons of men
The Lord has made his counsels known;
To make them heirs of grace again,
He send his dear beloved son.
3 He gave himself, he bled and died,
And bore for man that heavy load,
Till all demands were satisfi'd
And man was reconcil'd to God.
4 We were pluck'd up like burning brands
Out of a fierce consuming fire,
And plac'd into the Saviour's hands,
To be his own, his own entire.
5 No greater mercy can be found,
No greater proof of tender love.
What praises to our God redound:
God sent his Son from heav'n above!
