Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I will sing of my Redeemer,
Jesus, Lord, who died for me;
How he left the courts of glory,
Son of God, yet man to be,
Meek and lowly, condescending,
The Incarnate God!

Refrain:
Yes, I’ll praise my dear Redeemer,
For his wondrous love to me,
Love abounding, love excelling,
Paid my debt and set me free;
Hallelujah! I will praise him,
For he gave his life for me.

2 For my sins he paid the ransom,
Shed his blood upon the tree;
One the cruel cross suspended,
There he died in agony,
Crowned with thorns, mocked and derided,
Jesus crucified! [Refrain]

3 I will praise my ris’n Redeemer,
Christ, the resurrected Lord;
For he rose o’er death triumphant,
And fulfilled thus his word:
“Death and hell I came to conquer,”
Dear avenging Lord! [Refrain]

4 I will praise him up in glory,
Sing his dear, redeeming love;
And to angels tell his story
Of the Lamb who sits above,
All the shining hosts of heaven,
Jesus, glorified! [Refrain]
