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

JESUS, see me at thy feet,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Thou alone my need canst meet,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

Refrain:
No! no! Nothing do I bring,
Buy by faith I’m clinging
To thy cross, O Lamb of God!
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

2 See my heart, Lord, torn with grief,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Me unpardoned do not leave,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

3 Dark, in deed, the past has been,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Yet in mercy take me in,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

4 As I am, O hear me pray,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
I can come no other way,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

5 All that I can do is vain,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
I can ne’er remove a stain,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

6 Lord, I cast myself on thee,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
From my guilt, O set me free,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.
