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

1 As far as the East is removed from the West,
So far that no eye can see,
My sins are removed, and oh, praise the Lord!
That is far enough for me.

That is far enough for me,
Far enough for me;
As far as the East is removed from the West,
That is far enough for me.

2 Far down in the ocean’s unsearchable depths,
Far down in the raging sea,
My sins He has buried, and praise His dear name,
That is far enough for me.

That is far enough for me,
Far enough for me;
Far down in the ocean’s unsearchable depths,
That is far enough for me.

3 My sins are on Jesus, I know I am safe;
It matters not where they be,
Since He has redeemed me, they’ve gone from my soul,
That is good enough for me.

That is good enough for me,
Good enough for me;
Since He has redeemed me, they’ve gone from my soul,
That is good enough for me.
