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

Great Son of God, supremely brave

Great Son of God, supremely brave

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Great Son of God, supremely brave,
Who stooped to earth in fleshly guise,
The erring souls of men to save,
And bring them back to Paradise;
Unceasing praise Thy love shall tell,
Where men redeemed, and angels dwell.

Great Son of God, supremely meek,
The vileness of our shame to wear;
In haunts of sin the lost to seek,
The burden of their guilt to bear,
And on a cross resign Thy breath,
To save their souls from endless death.

123
Great Son of God, supremely good,
The blessing of Thy life to give;
Thy wounded flesh for needful food,
That in Thy strength our souls may live,
And in that strength unfaltering rise
To lives of noblest sacrifice.

Great Son of God, we own Thy claim--
Our souls are Thine, and not our own;
Now on our foreheads stamp Thy name,
That we may live for Thee alone,
And in our lives such service show,
As Thou didst render here below.
