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 wanderer, rejoice, rejoice!
Lift up your head and sing!
Good tidings of great joy and peace,
From Christ the Lord we bring.
O wanderer, rejoice,
No longer fear or doubt,
The soul that comes to Christ in love,
He never will cast out.
2 O love supreme! O mercy vast!
O matchless, boundless grace!
The great Creator gave His Son
To save a ruined race. [Refrain]
3 When we were hopeless, lost, undone,
For us He lived and died:
For us they nailed Him to the cross,
And pierced His blessed side. [Refrain]
4 In triumph from the grave He rose;
And now He intercedes
At God’s right hand, for you and me!
For our transgressions pleads. [Refrain]
5 Then break, O heart, and let Him in!
He stands outside the door,
O hear His gentle, pleading voice!
Resist His love no more. [Refrain]Source: Sacred Songs No. 1: compiled and arranged for use in gospel meetings, Sunday schools, prayer meetings and other religious services #48
