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. On Passover our Lord preparèd to,
With His belovèd twelve, His last supper share.
To comfort, and to heal them by His love,
He gave His Body and He gave His Blood.
He gave them freedom and He gave them life.
This by His Love!

2. There in the upper room, He told the twelve,
That He must die, thus from hell to save,
Our souls held fast by hellish sinful loves,
So we all might find homes in Heav’n above.
He gave us freedom and He gave us life.
This by His Love!

3. John on His holy breast, did rest his head.
While Peter cried, I’m Yours unto death.
Their spirits willing but, their flesh was weak.
But when Christ rose, He called them to the feast.
He gave them freedom and He gave them life.
This by His Love!

4. We too may share with Christ, our unseen Host,
The Bread of Love, and the Wine supreme.
Our wounded spirits and our sin sick souls,
Our Lord’s great healing love will now make whole.
He gave us freedom and He gave us life.
This by His Love!
