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.

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, my Saviour, how lovely Thou art!
Come enter my soul, and cleanse my foul heart;
For Thee I am living, and when life is run,
I’ll meet Thee in glory, and hear Thy “Well done.”

To Christ whose blood shall cleanse our hearts,
With trials and sorrows go;
There at His feet your burdens lay—
Each sorrow, grief and woe;
The fountain of His blood shall hear,
The soul so sick and sore,
And cleanse from ev’ry taint of sin,
To make it pure once more.

2 O Jesus, Redeemer, for me Thou didst die;
And conquer’d death’s tomb, ascended on high;
Should I then not serve Thee, as long as I’ve breath,
And haste at Thy bidding, e’en tho’ it be death? [Refrain]

3 O Jesus, my Saviour, come now and redeem
My life from all dross, with blood make me clean;
O come! Lord come quickly! without Thee ‘tis night;
O come! Lord come quickly! and scatter Thy light. [Refrain]
