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 now am so happy in Jesus’ sweet love,
No sorrow my heart can control;
I’m washed in the fountain that flowed from His side,
And Jesus gives peace to my soul.

Then, friends, why not come and find pardon today?
Why not come, why not come?
The Saviour is waiting, why longer delay?
O come to the fountain today.

2 I know I’m a sinner, a sinner redeemed,
A brand taken out of the flame;
I’ll let my light shine so that others may see,
And praise my Immanuel’s name. [Refrain]

3 The way is so simple the foolish may run,
The halt and the blind may come too;
Tho' crimson your stains, and like scarlet your sins,
The blood makes them whiter than snow. [Refrain]
