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.
Harry Plantinga


1. I am coming to the cross;
I am poor, and weak, and blind;
I am counting all but dross;
I shall full salvation find.

I am trusting, Lord, in thee,
Thou dear Lamb of Calvary;
Humbly at thy cross I bow;
Save me, Jesus, save me now.

2. Long my heart has sighed for thee;
Long as evil reigned within;
Jesus sweetly speaks to me,
I will cleanse you from all sin.
I am trusting, etc.

3. Here I give my all to thee,--
Friends, and time, and earthly store;
Soul and body thine to be--
Wholly thine--forever more.
I am trusting, etc.

4. In the promises I trust;
Now I feel the blood applied;
I am prostrate in the dust;
I with Christ am crucified.
I am trusting, etc.

5. Jesus comes! he fills my soul!
Perfected in love I am;
I am every whit made whole;
Glory, glory to the Lamb.
I am trusting, etc.
