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,

651. He Lifted Me

1 In loving-kindness Jesus came
my soul in mercy to reclaim,
and from the depths of sin and shame
thro' grace he lifted me.

Refrain:
From sinking sand he lifted me,
with tender hand he lifted me,
from shades of night to plains of light,
oh, praise his name, he lifted me!

2 He called me long before I heard,
before my sinful heart was stirred,
but when I took him at his word,
forgiv'n he lifted me. [Refrain]

3 His brow was pierced with many a thorn,
his hands by cruel nails were torn,
when from my guilt and grief, forlorn,
in love he lifted me. [Refrain]

4 Now on a higher plane I dwell,
and with my soul I know 'tis well;
yet how or why, I cannot tell,
he should have lifted me. [Refrain]
