We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Now I feel the sacred fire,
Kindling, flaming, glowing,
Higher still, and rising higher,
All my soul o’erflowing.
Life immortal I receive,
O the wondrous story!
I was dead, but now I live,
Glory, glory, glory!

2 Now I am from bondage freed,
Every bond is riven,
Jesus makes me free indeed,
Just as free as Heaven.
‘Tis a glorious liberty,
O the wondrous story!
I was bound, but now I’m free,
Glory, glory, glory!

3 Let the glorious message roll,
Roll through every nation,
Witnessing from soul to soul
This immense salvation.
Now I know ‘tis full and free,
O the wondrous story!
For I feel ‘tis saving me,
Glory, glory, glory!
