Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 O who is this that cometh
From Edom's crimson plain,
With wounded side, with garments dyed?
O tell me now thy name.
"I that saw thy soul's distress,
A ransom gave;
I that speak in righteousness,
Mighty to save."

Refrain:
Mighty to save,
Mighty to save,
Mighty to save;
Lord, I trust thy wondrous love,
Mighty to save.

2 O why is thine apparel
With reeking gore all dyed,
Like them that tread the winepress red?
O why this bloody tide?
I the wine-press trod alone,
"Neath dark'ning skies;
Of the people there was none
Mighty to save." [Chorus]

3 O bleeding Lamb, my Saviour!
How could'st thou bear this shame?
"With mercy fraught, mine own arm brought
Salvation in my name;
I the bloody fight have won,
Conquer'd the grave,
Now the year of joy has come,
Mighty to save." [Chorus]
