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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

The Priceless Gift

Representative Text

1 Rapture my bosom is swelling,
Grace, all sufficient and free,
Gift, every blessing excelling,
Jesus has offered to me.

Gift of a merciful Father,
Grace, all-sufficient and free,
Seal of the final redemption,
Jesus has offered to me.

2 Op'ning the portals of heaven,
Giving from sin a release,
Faith with its blessed assurance,
Mercy, and pardon, and peace. [Chorus]

3 Free to the poor and the needy,
Free to the sad and oppressed,
Balm to the wounded in spirit,
Bringing the weary one rest. [Chorus]

4 Come to the Fountain of Mercy;
Come, for salvation is free;
List to the Savior's assurance,
"Grace is sufficient for thee." [Chorus]
