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

Representative Text

1 I believe in Jesus and His word,
The word of life, so sweet and free,
And that He came to manifest His love,
And by His death to ransom me.

O how sweet it is to sing,
I believe, I believe!
To Him alone my soul will cling;
I believe on the Son of God.

2 I believe in Jesus and His cross,
And in the blood so freely shed;
I know He takes away the guilt of sin,
And grants me pardon in its stead. [Refrain]

3 I believe in Jesus and His name,
That gives access to mercy’s throne;
No other name can satisfy my faith,
For I am saved by Him alone. [Refrain]
