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, 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 Jesus feels and knows
All the weight of human woes;
Full and free His mercy flows,
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus!

Oh, that name we love to hear,
Name above all others dear!
How it calms our every fear!
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus!

2. Only Jesus looks within,
Sees our hearts and all our sin;
Only He can make us clean;
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus! [Refrain]

3. Only Jesus answers prayer,
Lighter makes the cross we bear,
Bids us cast on Him our care;
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus! [Refrain]

4. Safe in Him our souls abide,
Safe His hand our steps will guide,
Till we sing beyond the tide,
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus! [Refrain]
