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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O help me tell the story,
Of Christ my Lord and King;
For of His boundless mercy
My soul delights to sing.

O help me tell the story
Of Jesus’ boundless love,
Till, with the Church triumphant,
I sing His praise above!

2 He brought me out of bondage,
He paid my debts of sin:
The door of Life He opened,
That I might enter in. [Refrain]

3 He left His home in glory,
He laid His scepter down,
And on the cross He suffered,
That I might wear a crown. [Refrain]

4 By this my one Endeavour,
To glorify His name;
The story of Redemption
To all the world proclaim. [Refrain]
