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,

1071. You Ought to Sing

1 Jesus Christ has come to set the captive free,
He died to take away death’s sting;
His blood as a ransom He gave for thee,
Then praise to Him you ought to sing.

Refrain:
You ought to sing to the Lamb
Who has washed us in His blood;
He’s our Lord and our King;
To His name you ought to sing.

2 Jesus came our sorrows and our griefs to bear,
What love divine, oh, praise His name;
He says, “Cast on Me all thy load of care,”
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]

3 Sinner, come to Jesus and be saved today,
His blood can cleanse the crimson stain;
He’s ready to wash all your sins away;
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]

4 If you will be faithful through this pilgrim land,
And live to glorify His name,
You’ll find a sweet welcome at His right hand;
Then praise to Him you ought to sing. [Refrain]
