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 Why should we fear the powers of Hell,
Why should we be afraid?
Jesus conquer'd when he fell.
And rose our Lord and head.
2 His tortures and his dying pain,
His sorrows and his grief,
Have bursted the infernal chain,
And purchas'd our relief.
3 Death is in vict'ry swallow'd up,
Our freedom is obtain'd;
And Christ who is our life and hope,
Hath full redemption gain'd.
4 Now he has left his silent tomb,
And prov'd his mighty power;
We shall enjoy the life to come!
With him for ever more.
5 Come let us thank him for his love,
With all we can afford;
With saints on earth and hosts above,
Praise him our Mighty Lord.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXXIV
