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 Methinks, when in the judgment,
I stand at God’s white throne,
My sins will rise before me,
Their awful guilt I’ll own;
Then in that awful moment
I’ll reach the Savior’s side,
And touch His flowing garments,
For ’twas for me He died.

2 He has from sin redeemed me,
I know I am His child;
But when I stand in Heaven,
Before Heav’n’s undefiled,
Past memories may come o’er me,
My sin remembered be,
But oh! I shall remember,
That Jesus died for me.

3 Oh, I would not forget them,
Lest I’d forget ’tis meet,
To kneel before my Savior,
Low at His piercèd feet;
When crowned with Him in glory,
I’d in His wounds abide,
Confess thro’ endless ages,
That for my sins He died.
