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.

My dear Redeemer, dying God

My dear Redeemer, dying God

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 My dear Redeemer, dying God,
Who wast a Man like me,
Once nail'd to the accursed Wood,
My guilty Soul to free:
I love to hear of all thy Smart,
(Thou bear'st it all for me)
To see thy open bleeding Heart,
Where I from Sin am free.

2 Thy Blood is Gilead's Balm indeed,
Thy People's Hurt it heals;
Revives and quickens from the Dead,
My Pardon writes and seals:
Sown deeply in thy bleeding Wounds,
I firmly rooted am;
My Root, my Growth, my Fruit abounds,
In thee, thou spotless Lamb.

3 To Sin, Law, and the World, I'm dead,
Now by thy Death and Blood;
With thee, my Christ, my Life is hid
In all the Pow'r of God:
When thou, my Life, with Trumpets blown,
Appear'st on Clouds of Heav'n,
Then shall that glorious Life be known,
Which God to me hath giv'n.
