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.

1 How grateful the praises we offer today,
To Christ the Redeemer we prove;
Our sins, tho' as scarlet, are taken away,
For He is a Savior of Love. (a Savior of Love.)

Chorus:
For He is a Savior of Love (a Savior of Love)
A wonderful Savior of Love (a Savior of Love;
O come and partake of His mercy to-day,
For He is a Savior of Love. (a Savior of Love.)

2 What patience to lift us again and again,
Tho' often we stumble and fall;
With strength for our weakness, and solace for pain,
His grace is sufficient for all. (a Savior of Love.) [Chorus]

3 O Giver of faith that increases our sight,
O Rock that shall never remove,
The entrance abundant to Glory and Light;
For He is a Savior of Love (a Savior of Love.) [Chorus]
