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.
1 O Mighty God, thou virgin son!
Jesus, my Lord and King!
Thou art my Saviour, thou alone,
Who dost salvation bring:
2 Not any who on earth do dwell,
Not Kings of might and pow'r;
Nor Angels who do far excel,
Could save us ev'r more.
3 Such as the fallen Angels are,
Such was our wretched case,
Condemn'd to horror and dispair
And infinite disgrace.
4 The covenant that Adam broke,
Has caus'd our wretched state:
And thus we feel the heavy yoke
Of sin and all its weight.
5 But O, thy mercy and thy love!
And grace for us design'd:
Will ever more effectual prove,
To change the carnal mind.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XX
