Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Who can have greater Cause to sing;
Who greater Cause to bless,
Than we the Children of the King,
Than we who Christ possess,
Than we who Christ possess;
Than we who Christ possess.

2 With Angel-Hosts, dear Lamb, e join,
To praise thy Love and Power,
To magnify thy Grace divine,
Thou mighty Consellor,
Thou mighty Consellor,
Thou mighty Consellor.

3 We late were Satan's Captives led;
And Hell had been our End
Had'st thou not for our Pardon bled,
Thou sinner's only Friend,
Thou sinner's only Friend,
Thou sinner's only Friend.

4 For this we ne'er will hold our Tongue,
Nor shall our Prasies cease:
We ever-more will sing that Song,
"The Lord our Right'ousness,"
"The Lord our Right'ousness,"
"The Lord our Right'ousness."

5 No other God we know but Thee,
None else did us create:
Thy Glory may we ever be,
O holy Advocate,
O holy Advocate.
O holy Advocate.

6 'Twas thou, 'twas only thou did'st take
The Mediator's Place,
When we the Father's Statutes break;
All Hail, thou Prince of Peace,
All Hail, thou Prince of Peace,
All Hail, thou Prince of Peace.

7 We daily prove thee still the same,
Whene'er our need we see,
Thou bearest still a Saviour's Name,
Our Saviour thou shalt be,
Our Saviour thou shalt be,
Our Saviour thou shalt be.

8 No Law, nor Sin, nor Hell nor Death
Shall us from thee divide;
Strongly we hold that precious Faith;
For us our Saviour dy'd,
For us our Saviour dy'd,
For us our Saviour dy'd.
