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 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.Source: Church Book: for the use of Evangelical Lutheran congregations #339
