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.

1 Praise the Lord! From His condemnation,
He hath made me forever free;
Praise the Lord! For His great salvation
Brings deliv’rance and joy to me.

Refrain:
Free, free from the pow’r of sin;
Free, free, joy and peace within;
I’m free, free, glorious liberty!
With the sons of God rejoicing,
I am free.

2 Praise the Lord, all my sin and sorrow,
Once He bore on the blood-stained tree;
And no more do I dread the morrow,
For my Saviour will care for me. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord for each broken fetter,
For the chains He hath cast away;
By His grace I will serve Him better;
Free to serve, ev’ry ransomed day. [Refrain]
