We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

What a Wonderful Savior

Representative Text

1 Christ has for sin atonement made–
What a wonderful Savior!
We are redeemed, the price is paid–
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain:
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Jesus!
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord!

2 I praise Him for the cleansing blood–
What a wonderful Savior!
That reconciled my soul to God–
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

3 He cleansed my heart from all its sin–
What a wonderful Savior!
And now He reigns and rules therein–
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

4 He gives me overcoming pow'r–
What a wonderful Savior!
And triumph in each trying hour–
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]
