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 What do ye think of Christ indeed;
Who do ye say is he?
To judge this matter take ye heed,
And search the truth and see.
2 We call him David's son 'tis true,
As written in the word--
But it must be remember'd too,
That David calls him Lord.
3 The Lord whom David freely own'd,
To be his sovereign head:
With whom his soul had ever found
Such grace as he did need.
4 Who is he then in my esteem,
My soul what dost thou feel;
Wilt thou not ask that grace from him,
To learn and do his will.
5 He is the Pearl of greater price!
And those who love him best,
Shall be with greatest hopes and joys;
For evermore possess'd.
6 What think ye then ye sons of men?
Should he not be our King;
Should we not wish with him to reign,
And e'er his praise to sing?
