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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O come, thou wounded Lamb of God;
Come, wash us in thy cleansing blood!
Give us to know thy love, then pain
Is sweet, and life or death is gain.

2 Take our poor hearts, and let them be
For ever closed to all but thee;
Seal thou our breasts, and let us wear
That pledge of love for ever there.

3 How can it be thou heavenly King,
That thou should man to glory bring!
Make slaves the partners of thy throne,
And give them an immortal crown!

4 Ah, Lord! enlarge our scanty thought;
To know the wonders thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stammering tongues to tell
Thy love Immense, unsearchable.

5 First-born of many brethren, thou,
To thee both earth and heaven must bow;
Help us to thee our all to give,
Thine may we die, thine may we live!
