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.

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.

Representative Text

1 The tribute of our thanks we bring
To Thee, our Savior, Lord and King,
Who, as the Lamb for sinners slain,
Dost for us all God's pardon gain.

2 Thou God and Man, we also pray
Thy sacred wounds may prove our stay,
Our comfort when we yield our breath,
Our rescue from eternal death.

3 Against all sin to take our stand,
O lend us Thine almighty hand;
Let all who here the cross must bear
The comfort of Thy suff'rings share.

4 May we the sweet assurance gain
That Thou to us wilt true remain
And strengthen us in ev'ry strife
Till we have passed thro' death to life.
