Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

1 Sav’d by grace, oh, blessed tidings,
Wonderful His love to show,
Jesus died to bring salvation
To the perishing below.

Sav’d by grace, oh, blessed thought,
By my Saviour’s blood I’m bought.

2 Sav’d by grace, oh, blessed tidings,
Jesus drank the cup for me,
Bow’d His head and cried “’Tis finished!”
Now my soul is counted free. [Refrain]

3 Sav’d by grace, oh, blessed tidings,
Happy he who can repeat,
Who can sing redemption’s story,
Sitting at the Saviour’s feet. [Refrain]

4 Sav’d by grace, I’ll sing forever,
Tell the wondrous news abroad,
Spread the gospel tidings ever,
“Worthy is the Lamb of God.” [Refrain]
