Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 I came in faith to Jesus where none have sought in vain,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
He gladly took my burden and cleansed my ev’ry stain,
I’m glad salvation reaches me.

Refrain:
I’m glad it reaches me,
Glad it reaches me,
This wonderful salvation so full and free;
I’m glad it reaches me,
Glad it reaches me,
This wonderful salvation, it reaches me.

2 I heard the gospel story, ‘twas music to my soul,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
I came to Christ a sinner, he made me fully whole,
I’m glad salvation reaches me. [Refrain]

3 I’ll tell the Saviour’s goodness and tell his pow’r to save,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
Thro’ him I have assurance of life beyond the grave,
I’m glad salvation reaches me. [Refrain]
