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.

Representative Text

1 I will sing the wondrous story,
Of salvation full and free,
How my Savior left His glory
To redeem and ransom me.

Refrain:
I will sing the wondrous story,
Though but young in years I be;
Jesus came from realms of glory
To redeem and ransom me.

2 Heavenly story of salvation!
How the Son of God on high
Came to earth in rich compassion,
Gave Himself for us to die. [Refrain]

3 I will sing this blessèd story,
Gladly sing it everywhere,
Of the Savior’s matchless glory,
And the love His children share. [Refrain]

4 I will sing the story sweetly,
And when life is sinking low,
I will trust Him then completely,
For my Savior loves me so. [Refrain]
