We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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.

Lamb of God! whose bleeding love

Representative Text

1 Lamb of God, whose bleeding love
We now recall to mind,
Send the answer from above,
And let us mercy find.
Think on us who think on Thee,
Every burdened soul release;
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace.

2 By Thine agonizing pain,
And bloody sweat, we pray,
By Thy dying love to man,
Take all our sins away;
Burst our bonds, and set us free,
From iniquity release;
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace.

3 Let Thy blood by faith applied,
The sinner’s pardon seal;
Speak us freely justified,
And all our sickness heal;
By Thy passion on the tree,
Let our griefs and sorrows cease,
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace.

Charles Wesley was the youngest son and 18th child of Samuel and Susanna Wesley, and was born at Epworth Rectory, Dec. 18, 1707.

First Line: Lamb of God! whose bleeding love
Author: Charles Wesley


Lamb of God, Whose bleeding love. C. Wesley. Holy Communion.] This is No. 20 of the Wesley Hymns on the Lord's Supper, 1745, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. iii. p. 228). It was given in the older hymnbooks of the Church of England as Madan's Psalms & Hymns, 1760; Toplady's Psalms & Hymns, 1776, and others, and also in some Nonconformist collections, but was not included in the Wesleyan Hymn Book until the Supplement of 1830. An altered version of this hymn, beginning," Lamb of God, Whose dying love," appeared in Hall's Mitre Hymn Book, 1836, No. 269, in 2 st. of 8 1. That arrangement was by E. Osier, and was repeated, with slight changes, in his Church & King, March, 1837. Another form of the hymn is, “Blest Lamb of God, whose dying love." It is found in the Rugby School Hymn Book, 1850; Kennedy, 1863, and others.
