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,

Able To Deliver

Full Text

1 Able to deliver! sound it far and near;
Able to deliver whosoe'er will hear;
From the fiery furnace, from the sinner's doom,
Jesus will deliver whosoe'er will come.

Chorus:
Able to deliver,
Able now to save,
When you are, my brother,
Able to believe.

2 Able to deliver! can it really be?
Is there any power can deliver me?
Tell me, tell me truly, is the Christ once slain
Able to deliver me from Satan's chain? [Chorus]

3 Able to deliver! courage, trembling one!
Are you serving Jesus? he will save his own.
Fear not Satan's power, cling to Jesus' hand,
Cease your fear and doubting, boldly for him stand. [Chorus]
