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.

716. Believe Ye That I Am Able?

1. The blind men to Jesus cried out by the way,
Beseeching in darkness for light;
Oh help, Son of David, have mercy, we pray,
And grant us the blessing of sight.

Believe ye that I am able, able to do this?
According unto your faith be it unto you.

2. O Christian, so weary of sorrow and sin,
Your darkness will vanish away;
His light like the glory of noontide, shine in—
To you He is saying today, [Refrain]

3. Oh wand’rer if you would a blessing receive,
He’s passing, oh do not delay;
But answer Him quickly,
Yea, Lord, I believe,
To you He is saying today, [Refrain]

4. The same Son of David is healing today,
All those who upon Him call;
Yes, Jesus of Nazareth is passing this way,
He’s saying to us, one and all, [Refrain]
