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.

Representative Text

1 Crowned as king forever, high and holy One,
Jesus, our Redeemer, may Thy will be done.
Ever interceding at the throne above,
Bearing sin and sorrow, light of truth and love.

Christ, the only Savior, for the world we sing;
Unto Him who loved us, all the world we bring.

2 Only hope of Heaven, gift beyond compare,
Rest for all the weary, hear, O hear our prayer.
Strength of all the tempted, mighty still to save.
Pitiful and tender, Lord, Thy help we crave. [Refrain]

3 Infinite defender, only helper true,
Ready to redeem us, Lord, our strength renew.
Name above all others, Christ, the sinner’s friend,
Jesus Christ our Savior, keep us to the end. [Refrain]
