Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Here, blessed Jesus, we appear

Here, blessed Jesus, we appear

Representative Text

1 Here, blessed Jesus, we appear!
Thy sacred word of truth to hear;
Draw from this world our minds to thee,
And faithful hearers we shall be.

2 How wretched is our state of mind!
Our hearts how stupid, deaf and blind;
the way of life we do not know
Nor have we pow'r therein to go.

3 Thy grace to us, dear Lord afford,
To hear and understand thy word!
Lo, here we wait for grace divine,
Till eery heart be truly thine.

4 Without thy grace we hear in vain,
In doubts and darkness we remain,
Till thou art pleas'd that light to give,
That light in which our souls may live.

5 We pray thee Lord, to us draw near;
Our feeble prayer and praises hear--
According to thy promise Lord!
We wait thy spirit with the word.
