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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 I came to Jesus, weary, worn, and sad,
He took my sins away,
He took my sins away.
And now His love has made my heart so glad,
He took my sins away.

Chorus:
He took my sins away,
He took my sins away,
And keeps me singing every day!
I’m so glad He took my sins away.
He took my sins away.

2 The load of sin was more than I could bear.
He took them all away,
He took them all away.
And now on Him I roll my every care,
He took my sins away. (Chorus)

3 No condemnation have I in my heart,
He took my sins away,
He took my sins away.
His perfect peace He did to me impart,
He took my sins away. (Chorus)

4 If you will come to Jesus Christ today,
He’ll take your sins away,
He’ll take your sins away,
And keep you happy in His love each day,
He’ll take your sins away. (Chorus)
