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.
1 Jesus thou everlasting word!
Almighty God and Sov'reign Lord:
Who art from all eternity?
All things were made and form'd by thee.
2 Thou art the Lord or Earth & Heav'n,
By thee eternal life is giv'n:
Thou art the great and shining light
Which brings the way of truth to sight.
3 Jesus, the glorious son of God,
Took on himself our flesh and blood;
When he was born the Virgin's Son
To make the sons of men his own.
4 That mighty word is come to view,
Which Men or Angels never knew;
Till in the flesh it was reveal'd
And all the prophecies fulfill'd.
5 That blessed word to me reveal
My Lord! and let me taste and feel
That pow'rful word, and light divine,
With life and grace in me to shine.
