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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. Our Redeemer died to save us
On the cross of Calvary,
Suffered there that He might purchase
Endless life for you and me;
Tell to all the world the story
Of His wondrous sacrifice;
Tell them of His risen glory,
King of earth and paradise.

Refrain
Tell the blessèd story
To the sons of men;
Tell the blessèd story
O’er and o’er again.

2. Tell of Jesus on the mountain,
Speaking to the multitude,
Preaching there the blessèd Gospel,
While He gave them earthly food;
Tell how winds and waves obeyed Him,
Owning thus His majesty,
When He stilled the angry tempest
On the Sea of Galilee. [Refrain]

3. Tell them all the words of comfort
Spoken by His loving voice,
Of His tender consolation,
Bidding troubled hearts rejoice;
Tell them of the living waters,
Flowing to refresh the soul,
And the golden crown that waits us
When at last we reach the goal. [Refrain]
