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.

Representative Text

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]
