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.
Harry Plantinga

The Lion of Judah

Representative Text

1 'Twas Jesus, my Saviour, who died on the tree
To open a fountain for sinners like me;
His blood is the fountain thath pardon bestows,
And cleanses the foulest wherever it flows.

For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again;
For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again

2 And when I was willing with all things to part,
He gave me my bounty, His love in my heart;
So now I am join'd with the conquering band
Who are marching to glory at Jesus’ command. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ round me the storms of adversity roll,
And the waves of destruction encompass my soul,
In vain this frail vessel the tempest shall toss,
My hopes rest secure on the blood of the Cross. [Refrain]

4 And when with the ransom'd of Jesus, my head,
From fountain to fountain I then shall be led,
I’ll fall at His feet and His mercy adore,
And sing of the blood of the Cross evermore. [Refrain]

5 Come, sinners, to Jesus! no longer delay;
A full free salvation He offers today;
Arouse your dark spirits, awake from your dream,
And Christ will support you in coming to Him. [Refrain]
