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 'Tis not of him that weeps and prays;
The Gift of God is free;
'Tis Jesu's Pray'r, his Groans and Cries,
That shall accepted be.
2 'Tis in the Lamb's Abasement low,
We are receiv'd of God:
Lo! nothing is there Good we know,
But Jesus, and his Blood.
3 'Tis thro' his Death, and Off'ring up
On the accursed Wood,
That we are privileg'd to sup
With him, our Lord and God.
4 'Tis thro' his Resurrection-Pow'r
We live the Life of Faith:
In his dear Body we are more
Than Conqu'rors over Death.
5 When he ascended up on high,
Lo! we ascended then;
He captive led Captivity,
Receiving Gifts for Men.
6 Yea, for rebellious Men he su'd,
That God with them might dwell;
And when his wounded Form he shew'd,
The Spirit on them fell.
7 All Praise to him, our God, our Friend,
Who finish'd all for us;
We bless the Love, which hath no End,
Revealed on the Cross.Source: Christian Hymns, Poems, and Spiritual Songs: sacred to the praise of God our Saviour #II.IX
