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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O I have got good news for you!
A story wonderful and true;
’Twill make you happy, that I know,
It made me glad, and now I go—

To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
With the happy saints above.

2 I once was far away from God,
On ruin’s dark and fatal road,
And little dreamed I’d see the day
That I should tread the narrow way— [Refrain]

3 O’er this wild waste I loved to roam,
My back to God and Heav’n and home,
When Jesus met me far astray,
And beckoned me to come away— [Refrain]

4 He said on Calvary’s cross He died,
A sacrifice for sin was made,
And all because He loved me so;
Then how I could do else than go— [Refrain]

5 Now everyone that’s standing by
O ’twas for you the Christ did die!
This moment, too, He waits for thee,
Then just believe and you’ll be free— [Refrain]

6 Whene’er the record you believe,
You life eternal shall receive,
And soon from pain and sorrow free
You’ll join that glorious company— [Refrain]
