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. Savior give, oh, give me rest
For this torn and troubled breast;
Sin has bound me with its chain,
Come Thou Lamb for sinners slain.

Savior, heal, oh, heal me now,
As before Thy throne I bow;
All my tears cannot redeem;
Plunge me in the crimson stream.

2. Come, oh, come, with me abide,
Let me feel Thy blood applied;
Humbly at Thy feet I bow,
In my weakness heal me now. [Refrain]

3. If I aught withhold from Thee,
Break the bond and set me free;
Come and bid all sin depart,
Stamp Thine image on my heart. [Refrain]

4. Now, just now, I feel the flood,
’Tis the ever precious blood;
I am Thine, and this is bliss,
’Tis Thy reconciling kiss. [Refrain]
