Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

194. Our Great Savior

1 Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
friends may fail me, foes assail me,
he, my Savior, makes me whole.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
he is with me to the end.

2 Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in him;
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
he, my Strength, my victory wins. (Refrain)

3 Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
even when my heart is breaking,
he, my Comfort, helps my soul. (Refrain)

4 Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
storms about me, night o'ertakes me,
he, my Pilot, hears my cry. (Refrain)

5 Jesus! I do now receive him,
more than all in him I find,
he hath granted me forgiveness,
I am his, and he is mine. (Refrain)
