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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 “He that believeth on the Son,” ‘tis written in His Word
Shall everlasting life obtain thro’ Jesus Christ the Lord;
Not earth below nor heav’n above the power can afford
Whereby we must be saved.

Refrain:
“He that believeth on the Son!”
It saith in the Word of the living God;
It is the way, the only way,
Whereby we must be saved.

2 We cannot hope by princely gifts we from our plenty take,
To be accepted of our God for such a paltry sake;
There is no earthly sacrifice within our pow’r to take,
Whereby we must be saved. [Refrain]

3 It cannot be because of any labor we have done,
Nor thro’ the merit of an earthly honor we have won;
There is no other way except through faith in Christ, the Son,
Whereby we must be saved. [Refrain]

4 It will not be because of any trophies we may bring,
If, when we reach the gate of heav’n, for us ajar they swing;
“He that believeth” is the way—let men and angels sing—
Whereby we must be saved. [Refrain]
