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.

Representative Text

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.
