Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.
