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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I am free, the Lord hath saved me,
I was burdened with my sin;
Then He whispered meek and lowly,
“Come to me; I’ll take you in.”

Refrain:
Hallelujah! glory, glory!
Let us sound the jubilee;
I will tell the wondrous story
Of the blood that cleanseth me.

2 In His pity He redeemed me,
When He saw me in my woe;
Yes, He sanctified and cleansed me,
And I’m whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the gushing springs of glory
That are flooding all my heart;
And the music, sweet and heav’nly,
Wakes the chords in every part. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the joy, no tongue can tell it!
’Tis like many flowing streams;
Now I stand upon the summit,
Where the golden sunlight gleams. [Refrain]
