Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. O Lord, within my soul,
I long for purity,
To be complete and whole
Alone through Thee.

Refrain
There is no other hope,
There is no other plea;
Salvation, full salvation free,
Must come alone through Thee.

2. I bend before Thy cross,
And know my heart can be
Cleansed from its sin and dross
Alone through Thee. [Refrain]

3. I pray at Thy dear feet,
Salvation full entreat,
And want to feel my love
In Thee complete. [Refrain]

4. My faith Thy Word believes,
The promise made to me,
And perfect peace receives
Alone through Thee. [Refrain]
