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.

11993. Sufficient Grace

1 The cross is heavy—this I know—
But there’s a blessèd place
Where I can flee in time of need
And find sufficient grace.

Sufficient grace, sufficient grace,
His word now offers me;
And when I see Him face to face,
His grace my theme shall be.

2 When dark the storm around me rolls,
It cannot hide His face;
Then to the mercy seat I flee
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

3 And when the tempter comes, and would
God’s work in me efface,
Then to the Savior I will go
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ oft I tread some thorny way,
Upon my Christian race,
I’m sure that always, day by day,
I’ll find sufficient grace. [Refrain]
