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.

Representative Text

1. Who came down from heav'n to earth?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Came a child of lowly birth?
Jesus Christ our Savior.

Sound the chorus loud and clear,
He hath brought salvation near;
None so precious, none so dear:
Jesus Christ our Savior.

2. Who was lifted on the cross?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
There to bear all pain and loss?
Jesus Christ our Savior. [Chorus]

3. Who hath promised to forgive?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Who hath said, "Believe and live?"
Jesus Christ our Savior. [Chorus]

4. Who is now enthroned above?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Whom should we obey and love?
Jesus Christ our Savior. [Chorus]

5. Who again from heav'n shall come?
Jesus Christ our Savior;
Take to glory all His own?
Jesus Christ our Savior. [Chorus]
