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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 For me the “Bread of life” was broken,
Redemption’s song my spirit stirred,
For me Christ’s messages were spoken,
Now I am feasting on His word.

Refrain:
My precious Saviour has assured me,
That I am safe when by His side;
My precious Saviour has procured me
A mansion bright, where I’ll abide.

2 For me the Lamb, so meek and lowly,
Was crucified on Calvary;
For me the Lamb, so pure and holy,
Rose from the grave triumphantly. [Refrain]

3 For me the fount of love is flowing,
There I refresh my weary soul;
For me the moments sweet are going,
And I am coming to the goal. [Refrain]
