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 Jesus left His home on high,
Down to earth He came to die
On Calvary for you and me;
Thor’ the blood He shed so free,
I am saved eternally,
I will never doubt it for its real.

I will never doubt that Jesus laid His hand on me,
From the pow’r of sin and darkness set me free,
And the Comforter abides;
In my heart He now resides,
I will never doubt it for its real.
For my sins He bled and died
On the cross was crucified,
O love divine! O Savior mine!
From the mire He lifted me,
Sav’d my soul and set me free.
I will never doubt it for its real.

2 In an “Upper room” one day,
I, in faith began to pray,
I tarried there, God answered pray’r
And the fire from heaven fell
Praise the Lord! I know it well,
And I never doubt it for its real. [Refrain]

3 It was love divine alone,
Thro’ a merit not my own,
That lifted me, that set me free,
All to Him I now resign,
I am His, and He is mine,
Hallelujah! for I know its real. [Refrain]
