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 To Jesus Christ, our living head,
Be everlasting praise;
Who now is raised from the dead,
With power life and grace.
2 He suffer'd, died and rose again,
though Death and Hell oppose;
He shall forever live and reign
In spite of all his foes.
3 The force of men and devils join'd
With all their art and scheme:
They could not keep that Lord confind
Who quells land conquers them.
4 He bleeds no more upon the tree,
No more to shed his blood;
He needs no more for sinners be!
The bleeding Lamb of God.
5 Once for us all, he bled an ddied,
But was from death restor'd;
He rose that we be justified,
And Holy to the Lord.
6 O, cruel death, where is thy sting,
Where is thy pow'r O grave;
All glory to the Lord our King,
Who died, our souls to save.
