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 That great example Jesus set,
As the Apostle saith;
Must ev'ry Christian imitate,
To prove his living faith.
2 The Christian man is call'd there to,
In Jesus steps to tread;
To suffer with his Lord below,
As members with the head.
3 Like Jesus, humble, meek and mild,
Let all his follow'rs be;
To all their fates be reconcil'd,
And bear with injury.
4 He was expos'd to scorn and pain,
Revil'd and mock'd and beat;
Yet he reviled not again,
Nor yet aveng'd the treat.
5 His life with willingness did yield,
And died, our lives to save;
And by his wounds, our wounds are heal'd,
And ransom'd from the grave.
6 Like Sheep that wander from the fold,
We left the ways of God;
But the great Bishop of the soul,
Redeem'd us by his blood.
7 O Christians then, let us partake,
And suffer with our Lord;
And bear the Cross for Jesus sake,
And wait the Great reward.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXXX
