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. Thro’ the sacrifice of Jesus the Lamb,
Thro’ the blood full atonement is made,
He has carried all our burdens of sorrow,
And on Him our transgressions were laid.

There is peace thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the precious blood He offers so free;
There is peace thro’ the blood,
O that precious blood is flowing for me.

2. Thro’ the sacrifice of Jesus the Lamb,
Thro’ the blood of the Lamb that was slain,
We are rescued from our bondage forever,
And the way of redemption is plain. [Refrain]

3. Thro’ the sacrifice of Jesus the Lamb,
Unto all who repent and believe,
What a comfort in the promise He left us—
Thro’ the blood we may pardon receive. [Refrain]

4. As in Adam we are ruined and lost,
So in Christ shall our life be restored,
And the Father in His mercy will own us
Thro’ the blood of our crucified Lord. [Refrain]
