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

He saves with power divine

Representative Text

1 Hear again the blessed, blessed story
Of the Saviour’s wondrous pow’r to save;
How for us he left his home in glory,
Conquered sin, death and the grave.

Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Sing aloud the story;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Give him all the praise and glory;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Saves this soul of mine;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
He saves with pow’r divine.

2 Sorrow, toil, and pain were in his pathway
All along his journey here below,
Leading him at last to Calv’ry’s mountain,
All to save our souls from woe. [Refrain]

3 May we now accept this blessed Saviour
Who has done so much for me and you;
Give to him our hearts, and tell the story,
Others then may find him too. [Refrain]
