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, man of sorrows,
Thy redeeming plan,
Saving from sin’s terrors,
Circles ev’ry man;
Thy good spirit drew me
Till to Thee I gave,
My heart sad and weary,
Raised from sin’s dark grave.

2 Were there not a Saviour,
Then our tears might flow;
But our great Redeemer,
Came to banish woe;
Who by faith exclaimeth,
“My God and my Lord!”
In this life regaineth,
Paradise restored.

3 Thou hast me forgiven,
Tho’ by sin defiled;
Made an heir of heaven,
Once Thy guilty child.
I have happy hours
Now, my Lord with Thee;
When opprest, new powers
Make me glad and free.

4 When the journey’s ended,
Christ will take my hand,
Gently see me landed,
Safe on Canaan’s strand;
There the saints victorious,
Sing of conflicts past,
Taste of joys more glorious,
Which forever last.
