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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I tho’t I was too great a sinner when the Saviour called to me,
That His mercy could not reach me nor from sin could make me free;
But I found I was mistaken, for He died upon the tree
That He might redeem the sinner, even such an one as me.

Oh, I am so glad I found Him such an all-sufficient Friend,
And I want to ever love Him and to serve Him to the end.

2 I tho’t I was too great a sinner, I had wand’red far astray,
And my sins rose up as mountains and obscured the light of day;
All was dark, so dark before me, when there shone a lustrous ray
From the cross of my dear Saviour, and my burden rolled away. [Refrain]

3 I tho’t I was too great a sinner in His love to share a part,
And I almost feared to ask Him for a place in His dear heart,
But I found there room abundant, and a welcome kind and free,
And I lift my voice to praise Him for His wondrous grace to me. [Refrain]
