Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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.
