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 Send the news o'er all the earth,
Grace is free, grace is free;
To the world make know its worth,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Tell the lost ones, bound by sin,
Perfect freedom they may win,
Bring, o bring the wand'rers in,
Grace is free, grace is free.

2 Send the message thro' the air,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Hope for millions in despair,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Sing it out in glad refrain,
Over mountain, over plain,
Tell the world that Christ shall reign,
Grace is free, grace is free.

3 Look to Jesus, look and live,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Grace is free, grace is free;
Pardon freely he will give,
Grace is free, grace is free;
On His love you can depend,
There's no other such a friend,
He will keep you to the end,
Grace is free, grace is free.

4 Sinners, Jesus will receive;
Grace is free, grace is free;
Life abundant He will give,
Grace is free, grace is free;
Hear, O hear His pleading voice,
Now, o now make Him your choice,
Come, O come, in Him rejoice,
Grace is free, grace is free.
