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

Full 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]
