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 Lo! a poor and needy sinner To the cross I cling,
Save me, Lord, save me, Lord!
Nothing great have I to offer, Nought but sin I bring,
Save me, Lord, save me, Lord!
Yes, I know He died for sinners On Mount Calvary;
And with joy I hear his loving voice, "I died for thee,"
I am coming blessed Savior, To Thy arms I fly,
Save me, Lord, save me, Lord.

2 There is perfect peace and pardon For the sin-sick soul,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Thro' the cleansing blood of Jesus, Sinners are made whole,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
"Come, and drink ye of the fountain, That is flowing free;
Come, and low before your Savior humbly bow the knee.
If you come believing, trusting, He will cleanse your soul,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

3 There's a house of many mansions That is built on high,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Where His chosen shall be gathered To Him bye and bye,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Just a few more years of toiling For the Master here;
Just a few more pray'rs to heaven till the goal we near,
Till he bids us "Come up higher," To that home above,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord.
