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.

That blessed gospel we are taught

Representative Text

1 That blessed Gospel we are taught,
Can prove the Saviour's pow'r;
The miracles that Jesus wrought,
Were never wrought before.

2 A ruler's daughter as we read,
A lifeless corpse had lay'n;
But Jesus who can raise the dead,
Rais'd her to life again.

3 Princes and rulers of this earth,
Who raise their honours high;
Like others of the meanest birth,
They all are born to die.

4 These things are scarcely ever thought,
Or ever cause a tear;
Until the greatest part are brought,
To lie upon the bier.

5 When troubles, sorrows and distress
Beset the greatest men;
Then they will seek the Saviour's face
To be reliev'd again.

6 Distress will make us seek the Lord,
If ne'er we did before;
And search the counsels of his word,
His love, his grace and pow'r.

7 But O, his love to man is great,
His gifts are ne'er withheld;
He helps each one in ev'ry state,
Who to his precepts yield.
