During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Jehovah, we in hymns of praise

Jehovah, we in hymns of praise

Author: Joseph Stennett
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jehovah, we in Hymns of Praise
thy matchless Grace adore.
That Grace that gave thy only Son;
what could'st thou give us more?
He's all in all: His Saints in Him
divine Perfection view;
'Tis of his Fulness they receive
all Grace and Glory too.

2 He freely gave his Blood, the Price
of our eternal Bliss:
Since no less could atone for Sin,
his Love would give no less.
He in the Wine-press of thy Wrath
for guilty men was crush'd;
Humbled himself to die, and laid
his Honour in the Dust.

3 That we might at his Table sit,
and be replenish'd there
With these dear pledges of his Grace,
'till we his Glory share.
