We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 I brought to the cross my burden of sin,
His wonderful love was my plea;
I gave Him my heart and peace dwells within,
Since Jesus, my Savior, found me.

Refrain:
Oh, bless His dear name,
I never will cease
To praise Him for mercy so free;
Oh, sweet is His love
And perfect my peace,
Since Jesus, my Savior, found me.

2 My trust is in One, who always is near;
My guide and companion is He;
I walk at His side, no foe do I fear,
Since Jesus, my Savior, found me. [Refrain]

3 Each murmuring thought His tenderness stills,
In sorrow, His hand I can see;
I patiently toil or rest as He wills,
Since Jesus, my Savior, found me. [Refrain]
