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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I was lost, now I’m saved by the blood of the Lamb
That was shed on the cross for me;
Taken out of the pit and the deep, miry clay,
Praise the Lord for victory!

O victory! glad victory
Is coming down from heav’n to my soul!
Faith is the victory that overcomes,
And makes the wounded spirit whole.

2 At the cross there is rest for the sin-burdened soul;
Hear His kind invitation, “Come!”
All thy burdens on Him He invites thee to roll,
And no more in sin to roam. [Refrain]

3 Brother, you, too, may come for the fullness of love;
Perfect peace shall to you be giv’n;
Ev’ry doubt, ev’ry fear Christ will surely remove,
And will guide thee home to heav’n. [Refrain]
