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 will go and tell my Savior
How I long His child to be;
At the cross I’ll seek and find Him;
He’s waiting there for me.

I will carry all my sins to Jesus,
Tho’ I’ve nothing but my heart to give Him;
I will go and lay my burden at the fountain;
I’ll go and be forgiv’n.

2 I will tell Him I have wandered
From the path that leads to Heav’n;
With a contrite, broken spirit,
I’ll go and be forgiv’n. [Refrain]

3 If my heart is truly humble,
He will not reject my prayer;
On the cross He died for sinners,
I know He saved me there. [Refrain]

4 I will tell Him all my story,
With His mercy all my plea;
At the cross I’ll seek and find Him,
He’s waiting there for me. [Refrain]
