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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 My soul is filled with joy and gladness
Since Jesus came to me,
His love has banished all my sadness,
From sin I am set free.

Chorus:
He set me free, He set me free,
I was blind, but hallelujah, now I see!
I shall ne’er forget the day
When He washed my sins away,
And He set, He set me free.

2 The Comforter divine is dwelling
Within my soul today;
His love to others I am telling
Since Jesus came to stay. [Chorus]

3 The grace of Jesus hath abounded
For all my sins I see,
Salvation walls have me surrounded,
From sin I am set free. [Chorus]
