We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1 My loving Saviour, I am thine, I am thine, I am thine,
Saved, sweetly saved by love divine,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
My soul so full still pants for more,
The higher up, we’d farther soar,
And all thy glory would explore;
So sweetly Jesus saves me.

Saves me, saves me,
So sweetly now he saves me;
My soul is full of love divine,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.

2 Oh, if this love be here so sweet, here so sweet, here so sweet,
Its full fruition who can mete?
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
I’ll sing thy praises here below,
From conqu’ring unto conquest go;
‘Tis glory all thy love to know,
So sweetly Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ here our tears will often flow; often flow; often flow;
Bereft and sorrowing oft we go,
Yet Jesus sweetly saves me.
For whilst I know thou art so near,
No danger can I ever fear,
The charge is still, “be of good cheer,”
For Jesus sweetly saves me. [Refrain]

4 E’en tho’ we weep, ‘tis not in vain, not in vain, not in vain,
E’en tho’ we die, to die is gain,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
Who would mount up must needs bow down;
Who’ll bear the cross shall wear the crown;
Whilst Jesus smiles the world may frown,
So sweetly Jesus saves me. [Refrain]
