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 wonderful words of the gospel!
O wonderful message they bring,
Proclaiming a blessed redemption
Thro’ Jesus our Saviour and king.

Refrain:
Believe, oh, believe in His mercy
That flows like a fountain so free;
Believe, and receive the redemption
He offers to you and to me.

2 He came from the throne of His glory,
And left the bright mansions above,
The world to redeem from its bondage;
So great His compassion and love. [Refrain]

3 O come to this wonderful Saviour,
Come weary and sorrow-oppressed;
Behold on the cross how He suffered,
That you in His kingdom might rest. [Refrain]

4 There’s no other refuge but Jesus,
No shelter where lost ones may fly;
And now, while He’s tenderly calling:
O “turn ye,” “for why will ye die?” [Refrain]
