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 O happy day! what a Saviour is mine!
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
All to his pleasure I gladly resign,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Jesus has taken my burden away;
Jesus has turned all my night into day;
Jesus has come to my heart,—come to stay,—
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
O happy day! what a Saviour is mine!
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
All to his pleasure I gladly resign,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!

2 O clap your hands, all ye people of God,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Let ev’ry tongue speak his mercy abroad,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
His loving kindness is better than gold;
He doth bestow more than my cup can hold;
Wondrous Salvation, that ne’er can be told—
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
O clap your hands, all ye people of God,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Let ev’ry tongue speak his mercy abroad,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!

3 Thanks be to God for the great vict’ry given,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Now I am free; ev’ry chain has been riven,—
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Out of the pit, and the mire, and the clay,
Jesus has borne me in triumph away;
Safe on the rock I am standing today,—
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Thanks be to God for the great vict’ry given,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Now I am free; ev’ry chain has been riven,—
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!

4 Glory to God, I would shout evermore,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
O for a voice that could reach ev’ry shore,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Help me, ye ransomed, awake, ev’ry string,
Let earth rejoice and the whole heavens ring,
While we the chorus unitedly sing,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
Glory to God, I would shout evermore,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
O for a voice that could reach ev’ry shore,
I am redeemed, praise the Lord!
