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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

36. I Will Tell the Wondrous Story

1 I am free, the Lord hath saved me,
I was burdened with my sin;
Then He whispered meek and lowly,
“Come to me; I’ll take you in.”

Refrain:
Hallelujah! glory, glory!
Let us sound the jubilee;
I will tell the wondrous story
Of the blood that cleanseth me.

2 In His pity He redeemed me,
When He saw me in my woe;
Yes, He sanctified and cleansed me,
And I’m whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the gushing springs of glory
That are flooding all my heart;
And the music, sweet and heav’nly,
Wakes the chords in every part. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the joy, no tongue can tell it!
’Tis like many flowing streams;
Now I stand upon the summit,
Where the golden sunlight gleams. [Refrain]
