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 Down into my loneliness, sorrow and night,
Illuming my soul with its radiance bright;
There comes a sweet message of love and of light,
That I may be saved tonight.
That I may be saved tonight,
That I may be saved tonight;
There comes the sweet word of love and light,
That I may be saved tonight.

2 For years in the darkness of sin I have trod,
Neglecting my Saviour, despising His blood;
Away from my home, and away from my God,
Yet I may be saved tonight.
Yet I may be saved tonight,
Yet I may be saved tonight;
Away from my home, my friends, my God,
Yet I may be saved tonight.

3 I’m coming in weakness, my Saviour, to Thee,
From sin and its bondage I long to be free;
Receive me O Master, Thine own would I be,
And I shall be saved tonight.
And I shall be saved tonight,
And I shall be saved tonight;
Receive me O Lord, Thine own to be;
And I shall be saved tonight.

4 The message of pardon at last I have heard,
And take Thee as Saviour, Redeemer and Lord;
I’ll doubt Thee no longer, but trust in Thy word,
That I may be saved tonight.
That I may be saved tonight,
That I may be saved tonight;
I’ll doubt Thee no more, but trust Thy word,
That I may be saved tonight.

19th Century Currently, our only data on Fridenhagen is that he was a minister. An E. A. Freidenhagen, ordained in 1890, was a Congregational minister in Topeka, Kansas, as of 1893, but we do not know if this is the same person. --www.hymntime.com/tch/ Go to person page >
