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.

Full Text

1 Praise God for a present salvation,
Praise God that He saves me just now.
I feel in my spirit the witness,
Each time as before Him I bow.

Refrain:
He saves me just now, hallelujah!
He saves me just now, this I know;
I mean to be true, and go all the way thro’,
For His blood keeps me whiter than snow.

2 Praise God for the wonderful moment
When all of my sins rolled away.
But praise Him still more that He keeps me,
And gives me the witness today. [Refrain]

3 And no on the heights I am standing,
And looking behind me I see,
How wondrous His grace manifested,
Was always sufficient for me. [Refrain]
