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 My soul had wandered far away,
Tossed on a stormy sea;
I trusted Christ to save me for
I knew he died for me.
I knew he died for me, for me,
I knew he died for me,
I trusted him to save me for
I knew he died for me.

2 I see by faith the crimson stream,
The thorns that pierc’d his brow;
I feel the precious blood applied,
And know he saves me now.
I know he saves, he saves me now,
I know he saves me now,
I feel the precious blood applied,
And know he saves me now.

3 Close by his wounded, bleeding side
Forever let me stay;
Let come what will, I trust and know
He keeps me day by day.
Oh, yes, he keeps me day by day,
He keeps me day by day,
Let come what will, I feel and know
He keeps me day by day.

4 My heart goes out in gratitude
For all his love to me,
And I intend to shout his praise
Thor’ all eternity.
Oh, yes! thro’ all eternity,
Thro’ all eternity,
And I intend to shout his praise
Thro’ all eternity.
