Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 What a brother we’ve found in the Saviour,
One who never forsakes in our need,
One who feels thro’ His cross ev’ry sorrow,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need.

Refrain:
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need,
He who for the erring will plead,
He who like a shepherd will lead,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need.

2 When we hunger and thirst in life’s desert,
How like manna His promises feed;
And He gives us the cup of salvation,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need. [Refrain]

3 He is one with the Father in glory,
Yet He stoops to our lowliest need;
Never wound was too deep for His healing,
Oh, He’s just such a Christ as we need. [Refrain]
