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 When Christ the blessed Saviour died,
And yielded up his ghost;
My suff'rings now are past, he cries,
I die to save the lost.
2 A pardon for our guilt he gain'd,
When Christ for us was slain;
Yet other blessings were obtain'd,
When Jesus rose again.
3 When he ascended up to God,
And took his seat above:
From whence his spirit is bestow'd,
Who sheds abroad his love.
4 Which works in us that living faith;
That faith which can destroy
The pow'rs of Satan, sin and death,
And fills our hearts with joy.
5 By Jesus' suff'rings we are sav'd,
And fitted for that place:
Where happiness abound indeed,
Before the Saviour's face.
