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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Lost, but Jesus saved me,
Saved me by His love;
Lost, but now He keeps me
For my rest above;
Lost, but Jesus found me,
In the desert wild;
Lost, but He redeemed me,
Owns me for His child.

2. Lost upon the mountains
Of life’s woe and sin;
Lost, but His free pardon
Safely took me in;
Lost, but Jesus bought me,
Bought me with His blood;
Lost, but Jesus keeps me
In the narrow road.

3. Lost far o’er the desert,
Know not where to flee;
Lost, but Jesus loved me,
Kindly pitied me;
Lost, but Jesus brought me,
Out into the light;
Lost, but still He saves me,
Guards me with His might.
