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, 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.

1 How shall a sinner find
The Saviour of mankind?
Canst Thou not accept my prayer?
Not bestow the grace I claim?
Where are Thy old mercies ? Where
All the powers of Jesu's name?

2 I will not let Thee go
Till I Thy mercy know;
Let me hear the welcome sound,
Speak, if still Thou canst forgive;
Speak, and let the lost be found;
Speak, and let the dying live.

3 Thy love is all my plea,
Thy passion speaks for me;
By Thy pangs and bloody sweat,
By Thy depths of grief unknown,
Save me, grasping at Thy feet,
Save, O save Thy ransomed one.

4 What hast Thou done for me?
O think of Calvary !
By Thy mortal groans and sighs,
By Thy precious death I pray,
Hear my dying spirit's cries,
Take, O take my sins away!
