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

Representative Text

1 O wanderer, rejoice, rejoice!
Lift up your head and sing!
Good tidings of great joy and peace,
From Christ the Lord we bring.

O wanderer, rejoice,
No longer fear or doubt,
The soul that comes to Christ in love,
He never will cast out.

2 O love supreme! O mercy vast!
O matchless, boundless grace!
The great Creator gave His Son
To save a ruined race. [Refrain]

3 When we were hopeless, lost, undone,
For us He lived and died:
For us they nailed Him to the cross,
And pierced His blessed side. [Refrain]

4 In triumph from the grave He rose;
And now He intercedes
At God’s right hand, for you and me!
For our transgressions pleads. [Refrain]

5 Then break, O heart, and let Him in!
He stands outside the door,
O hear His gentle, pleading voice!
Resist His love no more. [Refrain]
