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.

Representative Text

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)
