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

The great Redeemer we adore

The great Redeemer we adore

Author: Joseph Stennett
Published in 60 hymnals

Full Text

1 The great REdeemer we adore,
Who came the lost to seek and save;
Went humbly down from Jordan's shore
To find a tomb beneath a wave.

2 Thus it becomes us to fulfil,
All righteousness he meekly said,
Why should be then to do his will,
Or be ashamed or be afraid?

3 With thee into thy wat'ry tomb,
Lord 'tis our glory to descend;
'Tis wondrous grace that gives us room,
To lie interr'd with such a firend.

4 But a much more tempestuous flood,
O'erwhelm'd thy body and thy soul:
That's plung'd in tears and sweat and blood
And over this black terrors roll.

5 Yet as the yielding waves give way,
To let us see the lgith again:
So on thy resurrection day,
The bands of death prov'd weak and vain.
