Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Manifold Grace

Representative Text

1 As water cold to fainting souls,
When fever burns within,
The gospel like a river rolls,
To quench the pow'r of sin.

O blessed news of wondrous pow'r,
The message we receive;
We take free grace this favor'd hour,
And on the Lord believe.

2 As welcome heralds from afar,
From fields of blood and strife,
The gospel tells of ending war,
Of peace, and joy, and life. [Chorus]

3 As joyful tidings of release,
To captives long oppress'd,
The gospel makes our bondage cease,
And brings the sinner rest. [Chorus]
