We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Jesus, precious Savior

Jesus, precious Savior, thou hast saved my soul

Author: Harry Davis
Tune: [Jesus, precious Saviour]
Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus, precious Saviour, thou hast saved my soul,
From sin’s foul corruption made me fully whole;
Every hour I’ll serve thee, whate’er may befall,
Till in Heaven I crown thee King and Lord of all.

All my heart I give thee,
Day by day, come what may.
All my life I give thee,
Dying men to save.

2 From the lowly manger I will follow thee,
In the desert and the strife near thee I will be;
E’en the sufferings of the cross I will gladly bear,
And with thee in Heaven I a crown shall wear.

3 In the toils and conflicts faithful I will be,
All things I will gladly bear, they’ll be good for me;
As a saviour of mankind, slaves of sin to bring,
Give me holy courage, mighty, mighty King.

4 Precious souls are dying, nerve me for the fight,
Help me spread the glorious news, liberty and light;
Fiercer gets the contest, Satan’s power shall fall,
Then on earth I’ll crown thee glorious Lord of all.
