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 Have you touched the garment of the Holy One?
Are you washed in the soul-cleansing tide?
Are your sins forgiven?
Do you hope for heaven,
Thro’ the blood of the Christ crucified?

Refrain:
Thro’ the blood, cleansing blood,
Thro’ the blood of the Christ crucified,
Are your sins forgiven?
Do you hope for heaven,
Thro’ the blood of the Christ crucified?

2 Are you walking daily with your Lord in view?
Are you close to his dear, wounded side?
Do you love your Savior?
Do you seek God’s favor,
Thro’ the blood of the Christ crucified? [Refrain]

3 Are you bringing sinners to the sinner’s Friend,
Does your life tell of Jesus who died?
Do you have the Spirit?
Do you peace inherit,
Thro’ the blood of the Christ crucified? [Refrain]
