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,
Harry Plantinga

822. It is True Within My Heart :

1 I have read within the Bible
How a sinner vile and low,
Need but come in faith to Jesus
To be washed as white as snow;
How the heart, so stained and wicked,
Hardened by the guilt of sin,
May be purified and softened,
Till the Lord will dwell within.

Refrain:
I have read within the Bible
What His favor will impart;
And, oh, glory! I have proved it,
Now ’tis true within my heart.

2 I have read how sin was conquered
When He bled upon the tree,
How its binding chains were broken
That the captives might be free;
How I need not still do evil,
And repent from day to day,
But should find His grace sufficient,
Keeping sinless all the day. [Refrain]

3 I have read how a believer,
One who knows his wrongs forgiv’n,
May be cleansed from sin completely,
Made as pure and clean as heav’n;
Have the very root of evil
From his being swept away,
Leaving in his joyous bosom
An unending sabbath day. [Refrain]

4 I have read and have believed it,
How the Holy Ghost would come,
In His power and His glory,
Make the heart of man His home;
Keep it as a sacred temple,
Seal its door to every foe,
And preserve it pure and holy
All life’s journey here below. [Refrain]
