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.

'Tis not of him who weeps and prays

'Tis not of him who weeps and prays

Representative Text

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.
