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,

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Let us our Hearts and Voices raise,
To sound the mighty Saviour's Praise,
And sing he dy'd, and lives again
For us, the fallen Sons of men.
2 He bare our Curse, our Debt he paid,
When all our Woes on him were laid;
Our Midnight Darkness chas'd away,
And rais'd to eternal Day.
3 'Tis finish'd, saith the dying God,
For Man, cries all his Wounds and Blood:
salvation finish'd was for us,
In Jesus, bleeding on the Cross.
4 He, fainting, felt Death's rude Divorce,
To put his Testament in force;
Wherein to Man he did bequeath
The Labours of his Life and Death.
5 Quickly he breaks Death's feeble Chain,
And to his Throne ascends again;
There sits adorn'd with Wounds and Blood,
And calls the wand'rers Home to God.
6 Let all the Sons of Sion sing
Unwearied Praise to Christ their King,
He is our Saviour, God, and we
Will sound his Name eternally.Source: Christian Hymns, Poems, and Spiritual Songs: sacred to the praise of God our Saviour #II.VII
