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

O let the words of Jesus ring

Representative Text

1 Oh, let the words of Jesus ring
From east to west, from shore to shore;
You must, you must be born again,
To live for evermore.

You must be born again, again,
You must be born again, again;
To live with Christ for evermore,
You must be born again.

2 No works of thine can give the right
To enter heaven's open door;
Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Light,
And Life for evermore. [Chorus]

3 'Tis all of grace, abundant grace,
His word declares it o'er and o'er,
Whoe'er believes on Jesus Christ
Shall live for evermore. [Chorus]

4 He's ready now to cleanse thy heart,
If you His Spirit's pow'r implore;
The gift of life He will impart,
Yea, life for evermore. [Chorus]
