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.

Herodians and Pharisees

Herodians and Pharisees

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Herodians and Pharisees,
They join with one accord;
And as united enemies,
Seek to destroy our Lord.

2 Tho' they applaud him to his face,
And seem to take his part:
They like a false and viper race,
Hate him with all their heart.

3 Where Satan governs all the mind,
And rules the inward man;
there are the pow'rs of darkness join'd
to do what harm they can.

4 All Christian must be on their guard,
And wrath on ev'ry hand;
They must be tempted like our Lord,
By Satan and his band.

5 But Christ, their great and mighty head,
Who all their danger knows;
Will disappoint what snares are laid
By them, their crafty foes.
