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

Lamb of God, who once was slain

Lamb of God, who once was slain

Tune: UNSER JESUS IN DER NACHT
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lamb of God, who once wast slain,
We, whose sins did pierce Thee,
Now commemorate Thy pain,
And implore Thy mercy.

2 Thine's an everlasting Love:
We have sorely tried Thee.
Whom have we in heaven above.
Whom on earth beside Thee?

3 What can helpless sinners do,
When temptations seize us?
Naught have we to look unto,
But the Blood of Jesus.

4 Pardon all our baseness, Lord;
All our weakness pity:
Guide us safely by Thy Word
To the heavenly city.

5 O sustain us on the road
Through this desert dreary,.
Feed us with Thy Flesh and blood,
When we're faint and weary.

6 Bid us call to mind Thy Cross
Our hard hearts to soften.
Often, Saviour, feast us thus;
For we need it often.
