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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Saviour, break this heart of mine,
Melt it now with love divine;
Only thou my help must be,
Only thou canst set me free.

Refrain:
Out of the deep and miry clay
Take me away, oh, take me away;
Show me the Rock, O Lord, I pray,
Rock of eternal ages.

2 Bend thine ear and hear my cry,
Leave me not in sin to die;
This my hope, my only plea,—
Thou didst come to rescue me. [Refrain]

3 Reach thy hand and lift my soul
From the waves that o’er me roll;
Where for refuge can I flee?
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]

4 Save me now and evermore;
Lord, I would thy name adore;
Hide my trembling soul in thee;
Lord, I perish; save thou me. [Refrain]
