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.

O blessed truth the gospel shows

Representative Text

1 O Blessed truth the Gospel shews,
On which may be relied,
As Peter taught the partial Jews:
All doubts are laid aside.

2 No preft'rence unto men is giv'n,
Because of birth and name;
But all the nations under heaven,
Have equal right and claim.

3 All those who humbly fear the Lord,
And seek his righteousness;
All those who trust unto his word,
Have endlesslife and peace.

4 This doctrine through the promis'd land
First to the Jews was show'n:
And by the Saviour's great command
Made to all nations known.

5 The Jews had crucified and slain,
Jesus up on the tree!
But O, he rose and lives again,
To all eternity.

6 O happy news sent far abroad!
As prophecied before:
All may be reconcil'd to God,
And live for ever more.
