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.

Representative Text

1 I hear the words of Jesus,
They speak of peace with God;
I see the Lamb, Christ Jesus,
Who bore my heavy load;
I trust the blood of Jesus,
From sin it sets me free,
I love the name of Jesus,
Who gave Himself for me.

2 His word, divinely blessèd,
It shows me what I am;
His cross, it brings salvation,
The victim was the Lamb;
His blood procureth pardon,
And justifies the soul,
His name, how sweet and precious,
It makes the sinner whole.

3 Oh! hear the words of Jesus,
The tidings are for thee;
Oh! clasp the cross of Jesus,
And there for refuge flee;
Oh! trust the blood of Jesus,
Be saved this very hour;
Oh! love the name of Jesus,
Blest name of wondrous power.
