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

Had not the blessed Son of God

Had not the blessed Son of God

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Had not the blessed Son of God,
Who condescended thus:
To come on earth and shed his blood,
Who could have saved us!

2 No sacrifice could e'er by made,
That could atone for sin;
None but the blood the Saviour shed,
Could make our conscience clean.

3 We never could have been restor'd,
Into a state of bliss:
Had it not been that Christ our Lord,
Became our righteousness.

4 In this sad state we must have lain,
To all eternity,
Had we not been reclaim'd again,
By Christ who set us free.
