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.

When Christ, the blessed Savior, died

When Christ, the blessed Savior, died

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
