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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

11384. The Savior Is Bending

1 The Savior is bending above thee,
To hear what thy spirit will say,
To the tender embrace of His mercy and grace
Will the answer be "Yea, Lord," or "Nay"?
"I died for thee," sweetly He whispers,
See, here are the wounds in My hands;
Thy finger bring near, and touch without fear
The nail prints as o’er thee He stands.

Refrain:
The Savior is bending above thee,
To hear what thy spirit will say,
To the tender embrace of His mercy and grace,
Will the answer be "Yea, Lord," or "Nay"?

2 Look up in the face of the Savior,
The thorn crowned yet beautiful brow;
He waits the reply of thy tear-dimming eye,
Oh, what wilt thou answer Him now?
The Savior is bending above thee,
He asks for thy heart in return,
For the heart that He gave, to ransom and save,
Oh, will not thy glad spirit burn? [Refrain]

3 Thou hearest His offers of mercy,
The promise of pardon and peace;
Come, wilt thou not say to His voice a glad "Yea,"
And bid all thy waverings cease?
The Savior is bending above thee,
His quick ear awaits the glad word,
"Lord Jesus, today, I whisper my 'Yea,'
And know that my answer is heard." [Refrain]
