Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Jesus, O word divinely sweet

Jesus, O word divinely sweet

Full Text

1 JESUS, O word divinely sweet!
How charming is the sound!
What joyful news! what heavenly sense
In that dear name is found!

2 Our souls all guilty, and condemn'd,
In hopeless fetters lay;
Our souls, with numerous sins deprav'd
To death and hell a prey.

3 JESUS, to purge away this guilt,
A willing victim fell,
And on his cross triumphant broke
The bands of death and hell.

4 Our foes were mighty to destroy;
He mighty was to save:
He dy'd, but could not long be held
A prisoner to the grave.

5 JESUS, who mighty art to save,
Still push thy conquests on;
Extend the triumphs of thy cross,
Where'er the sun has shone.

6 O Captain of salvation! make
Thy power and mercy known;
'Till crouds of willing converts come,
And worship at thy throne.
