Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Like a wand’ring sheep from the fold I stray’d,
From the Shepherd’s tender care;
But I heard his voice and I came by faith
To the blessed gate of pray’r.

I surrender all to Jesus,
And to him the glory be,
I surrender all to Jesus,
On the cross he died for me.

2 There was joy and peace in this heart of mine,
That the world can never give,
When I felt the touch of my Saviour’s hand,
And he whispered, look and live. [Refrain]

3 I will praise his name while he gives me breath,
For he’s cleansed and made me whole;
I will praise his name for redeeming grace,
And the love that fills my soul. [Refrain]
