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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. Lord of creation, bow
Thine ear, O Christ, to hear
The intercession of
Thy servant true and dear,
That we unworthy, who
have trespassed in Thy sight,
May live before Thee where
he dwells in glorious light.

2. O God our Savior, look
on Thine inheritance,
Sealed by the favor shining
from Thy countenance;
That no false spirit bring
to naught the souls of price
Bought by the merit of
Thy perfect sacrifice.

3. We bear the burden of
our guilt and enmity,
Until Thy pardon lift
the heart from slavery;
Then through the spending of
Thy life blood, King of grace,
Grant us unending triumph
in Thy holy place.

4. To Thee the glorious Christ,
our Savior manifest,
All wreaths victorious, praise
and worship be addressed,
Whom with the living Father
humbly we adore,
And the life giving Spirit,
God forevermore.
