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

1 O, what a Savior, that He died for me!
From condemnation He hath made me free;
"He that believeth on the Son," saith He,
"Hath everlasting life."

Refrain:
"Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Verily, verily," message ever new;
"He that believeth on the Son," 'tis true,
"Hath everlasting life."

2 All my iniquities on Him were laid,
All my indebtedness by Him was paid;
All who believe on Him, the Lord hath said,
"Hath everlasting life." (Refrain)

3 Though poor and needy I can trust my Lord,
Though weak and sinful I believe His Word;
O, glad message! every child of God
"Hath everlasting life." (Refrain)

4 Though all unworthy, yet I will not doubt,
For him that cometh, He will not cast out;
"He that believeth," O the good news shout,
"Hath everlasting life." (Refrain)
