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.

Hear what the great apostle saith

Representative Text

1 Hear what the great Apostle saith:
Have ye that true and living faith?
O try yourselves and search the ground,
If living faith in you be found.

2 True faith it is a shining light,
It banishes the pow'r of night;
Creates the inward man anew,
Restores the Saviour's image too.

3 By living faith, grace is appli'd,
The soul is truly sanctifi'd;
Such souls possess the Saviour's mind,
Like him are truly meek and kind.

4 This faith will work a living hope,
And cheer the mind and build it up;
The soul is thus endow'd with pow'r,
To love the Lord for evermore.

5 My God create such faith in me!
Confirm my confidence in thee;
Establish thou my wav'ring heart,
Till I shall see thee as thou art.
