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.

Representative Text

1 Round Christ, the great incarnate God,
My arms of faith and love entwine;
His blood, for ev’ry sinner spilt,
Now cleanseth this poor heart of mine.

Refrain:
Oh yes, his blood for sinners spilt
Now cleanseth me from sin and guilt;
I now have found the healing balm,
In Calv’ry’s precious, bleeding Lamb.

2 Long sin’s disease oppressed my soul,—
The world could give no healing balm,—
But now the wondrous cure I’ve found,
In Christ the sacrificial lamb. [Refrain]

3 A joy to unwashed souls unknown
His cleansing blood has brought to me,
And on my peaceful spirit shines
The light that beams from Calvary. [Refrain]

4 The virtue of my Saviour’s blood
To guilty souls I will proclaim,
With joyful haste I’ll spread abroad
Jesus, the great Physician’s fame. [Refrain]
