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

Representative Text

1 Read it over again to me,
The promise to love so sweet,
That Jesus died to make me free
The wonderful words repeat.

Refrain:
Read it over again to me,
Wonderful story of love,
Read it over again to me,
My deed to a mansion above.

2 Read it over again to me,
I’m weary of sin and strife,
With Jesus thro’ eternity
Is better than lengthened life. [Refrain]

3 Read it over again to me,
That promise of love I’ll claim,
If aught can save, then surely He,
I’ll trust in His blessed name. [Refrain]
