Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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, 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)
