We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Jesus Christ Is Lord

He did not hold to his equality with God

Representative Text

Jesus Christ is Lord.
Jesus Christ is Lord.

1 He did not hold to his equality with God,
for he did empty himself to be as one of us,
to be as one of us. [Refrain]

2 He chose the will of God through death upon a cross,
and God did raise him up, exalting him on high,
exalting him on high. [Refrain]

3 And so God gave to him a name above all names.
May all in heaven and earth proclaim him now as Lord,
proclaim him now as Lord. [Refrain]
