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 Come sing, my soul, and praise the Lord,
who hath redeemed thee by His blood;
Delivered thee from chains that bound,
And brought thee to redemption ground.

Refrain:
Redemption ground, the ground of peace!
Redemption ground, O wondrous grace!
Here let our praise to God abound!
Who saves us on redemption ground.

2 Once from my God I wandered far,
And with His holy will made war;
But now my songs to God abound;
I’m standing on redemption ground. [Refrain]

3 O joyous hour! when God to me
A vision gave of Calvary;
My bonds were loos'd—my soul unbound,
I sang upon redemption ground. [Refrain]

4 No works of merit now I plead,
But Jesus take, for all my need;
No righteousness in me is found,
Except upon redemption ground. [Refrain]

5 Come, weary soul, and here find rest;
Accept redemption, and be blest:
The Christ who died, by God is crowned
To pardon on redemption ground. [Refrain]
