Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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]
