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 Jesus died to save us,
Life eternal He gave us;
Upon Calvary’s cross He paid the price of sin;
Tidings of salvation,
Shout with glad ovation,
Until every nation shall His praise begin.

Tell the beautiful story,
Tell the beautiful story
Of His wonderful glory,
Until every nation shall His praise begin.

2 Fill the world with singing,
Set the merry bells ringing,
Shout and publish to every creature Jesus’ name;
Send the leaves of healing,
Life and light revealing,
Until every nation shall His love proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Praise His name forever,
He is strong to deliver;
Naught is able to sever us from His embrace;
In the night He sought us,
To the light He brought us,
And at last we shall behold Him face to face. [Refrain]
