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 The living God, who by His might
Spake but the word and there was light,
Hath promised now to show His grace
To sinful men, in Jesus’ face.

In Jesus’ face! in Jesus’ face!
O wondrous sight! O wondrous grace!
The living God through sin concealed,
In Jesus’ face is now revealed.

2 This mighty Christ, so strong and true,
Has come from God, His work to do;
He comes with power the soul to save,
To give the vict’ry o’er the grave. [Refrain]

3 In Jesus’ face our God we know,
And trust in Him to bear us through;
He will not leave us to defeat,
But make our victory complete. [Refrain]

4 When darkness gives the soul distress,
When sorrows on our pathway press,
One look at Him will clouds displace,
While comfort beams from Jesus’ face. [Refrain]

5 Then come, ye weary ones, and rest;
Come, sinful souls, and here be blessed;
Within your heart give Christ His place,
And see God’s love in Jesus’ face. [Refrain]
