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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Oh! My Soul! Bless Thou Jehovah

Full Text

1 Oh! my soul, bless thou Jehovah!
God of love and grace art Thou;
Thou alone art wise and holy;
At Thy feet I humbly bow.

2 Thou Thy Son hast freely given
All our sins to bear away;
On the cross He made atonement,
Then to glory led the way.

3 He for us received the Spirit,
Precious gift of love divine,
Sheds Him forth upon Thy children;
Now forever He is mine.

4 Jesus soon again returneth!
Evermore with Him I’ll be,
Like Him through the endless ages,
Saved for all eternity.
