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 We should possess the Saviour's mind,
Like him be humble, meek and kind;
Esteem the world as filth and dross,
And be resign'd to bear the cross.
2 All pow'r and glory is his own,
But yet he left his heav'nly throne--
He came, and gave himself to be,
Expos'd to pain and misery.
3 On Calvery he groan'd and bled,
Until he bow'd his sacred head!
He died in sorrow, grief and pain,
But by his pow'r he rose again.
4 He hath ascended up on high!
He reigns above, beyond the sky--
And ev'ry knee to him shall bow,
In heav'n above, and earth below.
5 Immortal honors there he claims!
His name exceeds all other names:
None such on earth, or yet in heav'n
As that which god to him has giv'n.
6 Not Men or Angels e'er can raise,
Such notes as fully sound his praise;
Yet let us join with them to sing
the praises of the Lord our King.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXIV
