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 Only a look, my Saviour,
While trembling here I bow;
Only a look, my Saviour;
My heart is breaking now.
Only a look, only a look,
Only a look from Thee;
One look from the cross,
The blood-stained cross,
Will bring sweet peace to me.

2 Only a look, my Saviour,
Will all my sins forgive;
Tenderly now behold me,
And bid my spirit live.
Only a look, only a look,
Only a look from Thee;
One look from the cross,
The blood-stained cross,
Will bring sweet peace to me.

3 Only a look, my Saviour,
With joy my heart would fill;
Graciously hear my pleading,
And bend my wayward will.
Only a look, only a look,
Only a look from Thee;
One look from the cross,
The blood-stained cross,
Will bring sweet peace to me.

4 Only a look, my Saviour;
‘Tis done; the work is Thine;
Thou, by a look, hast made me
An heir of grace divine.
Only a look, only a look,
Only a look from Thee;
One look from the cross,
The blood-stained cross,
Has brought sweet peace to me.
