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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 My heart is fill’d with joy today,
I know that Jesus saves me;
His presence brightens all my way,
I know that Jesus saves me.

Refrain:
He saves me, He saves me,
I know He saves me now;
Oh, praise His name,
His precious name,
I know that Jesus saves me!

2 When peace is shining in my soul,
I know that Jesus saves me;
When sorrow’s waves around me roll,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

3 In calm or storm, in shine or shade,
I know that Jesus saves me;
In hope fulfilled or good delayed,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

4 No other joy can equal this,
I know that Jesus saves me;
Since He is mine and I am His,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

5 His blood doth for my sins atone,
I know that Jesus saves me;
His love receives me as His own,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]
