Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

XI. Holy Boldness

1 Sprinkled with reconciling blood,
I dare approach thy throne, O God
Thy face no frowning aspect wears,
Thy hand no vengeful thunder bears!

2 The encircling rainbow peaceful sign!
Doth with refulgent brightness shine;
And while my faith beholds it near,
I bid farewell to ev'ry fear.

3 Let me my grateful homage pay,
With courage sing; with fervor pray;
And tho' myself a wretch undone
Hope for acceptance thro' thy son.

4 Thy son, who on the accursed tree,
Expir'd to set the vilest free;
On this I build my only claim,
And all I ask is in his name.
