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.

He never Will Turn Me Away

Representative Text

1 I am glad that I know Jesus loves me so well,
And willingly hears when I pray,
That He freely forgives, and tho' oft I rebel,
He never will turn me away.

He never will turn me away,
He never will turn me away;
To him that o'er cometh
He giveth a crown,
And He never will turn me away.

2 I am glad that he ever is patient and kind,
And comforts my heart day by day;
And that, when I am tempted, I always shall find
He never will turn me away. [Refrain]

3 When I come to my Savior and tell Him my sin,
And promise His word to obey,
Then He give this assurance-I have it within--
He never will turn me away. [Refrain]
