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, 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 He ever lives above
My advocate to be,
With heart of tend’rest love
He intercedes for me.

Interceding for me,
Interceding for me;
O wonderful love! in courts above
He’s interceding for me.

2 No merit of my own
Can hope or mercy plead,
‘Tis Calv’ry’s grace alone
For me can intercede. [Refrain]

3 My Advocate and friend,
On Thee my hopes rely,
On Thee my cause depends;
O plead, or else I die. [Refrain]

4 My faith looks up to Thee,
Pleading at God’s right hand
For pardon full and free,
As all the law’s demand. [Refrain]
