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.

Let us our hearts and voices raise

Let us our hearts and voices raise

Representative Text

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.
