We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1. A sinner though I am, of darkest, deepest shade,
A righteousness I claim, my own thro’ Jesus made.
Unnumbered worlds would not atone,
But Jesus bore my sins alone,
But Jesus bore my sins alone.

Refrain
Saved, O yes, I’m saved,
Saved, O yes, I’m saved;
Thro’ Jesus’ blood and righteousness,
I now am saved:
Saved, O yes, I’m saved,
Saved, O yes, I’m saved;
Thro’ Jesus’ blood and righteousness,
I now am saved.

2. This love ineffable my heart hath prepossessed,
And filled my fervid soul with wonder unexpressed;
For thought or word seeks but in vain
The holy mystery to explain,
The holy mystery to explain. [Refrain]

3. Well might seraphic tongues be mute, with sacred awe;
And Heav’n’s sublimest songs suspend, while angels saw
A glimpse of what could not be told,
Nor can eternity unfold,
Nor can eternity unfold. [Refrain]

4. Heav’n’s unexampled love to man, in Christ displayed,
Shall endless wonder prove, unfathomed, unportrayed.
Eternal love! the Offended dies
To bring the offender to the skies,
To bring the offender to the skies. [Refrain]
