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.

1. God the Father’s only Son,
And with Him in glory One,
One in wisdom, One in might,
Absolute and infinite;
Jesu, I believe in thee,
Thou art Lord and God to me.

2. Preacher of eternal peace,
Christ anointed to release,
Setting wide the dungeon door,
Unto sinners chained before;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ the Prophet sent to me.

3. Low in deep Gethsemane,
High on dreadful Calvary,
In the garden, on the cross,
Making good our utter loss;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Priest and Sacrifice for me.

4. Ruler of Thy ransomed race,
And Protector by Thy grace,
Leader in the way we wend,
And Rewarder at the end;
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Christ, the King of kings to me.

5. Light revealed through clouds of pain,
That the blind might see again;
Love content in death to lie,
That the dead might never die:
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Light and Love and Life to me.

6. All that I am fain to know
While I watch and wait below:
All that I would find above,
Length and depth and height of love:
Jesu, I believe in Thee,
Thou art All in All to me.
