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.

Full Salvation

Representative Text

1 Full salvation, full salvation,
Lo! the fountain, opened wide,
Streams through every land and nation
From the Saviour’s wounded side!
Full salvation, full salvation,
Streams an endless crimson tide.

2 O the glorious revelation!
See the cleansing current flow,
Washing stains of condemnation
Whiter than the driven snow.
Full salvation, full salvation,
O the rapturous bliss to know!

3 Love’s resistless current sweeping
All the regions deep within,
Thought and wish and senses keeping
Now, and every instant, clean.
Full salvation, full salvation,
From the guilt and power of sin.

4 Life immortal, Heaven descending,
Lo! my heart the Spirit’s shrine;
God and man in oneness blending,
O what Fellowship is mine!
Full salvation, full salvation,
Raised in Christ to life divine.

5 Care and doubting, gloom and sorrow,
Fear and shame are mine no more;
Faith knows naught of dark tomorrow,
For my Saviour goes before.
Full salvation, full salvation,
Full and free for evermore.
