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. She came unto Jesus, her heart filled with grief,
She called to Him, "Master, O grant me relief;
My daughter is sick, she is sorely oppressed;
O grant my petition and heal her distress."

2. Her cry was unheeded, in vain did she pray,
Until His disciples said, "Send her away";
Then Jesus rebukingly said, "Not to thee,
To the lost sheep of Israel, salvation is free."

3. "’Tis time, Lord and Master, yet, O hear my prayer,
I ask but for crumbs from Thy table to share;
Thou surely wilt not send me empty away;
O hear my petition, and heal her today."

4. Then Jesus spake to her, in tones all divine,
"Be it as thou wilt and no longer repine;
So great is thy faith, be it now unto thee,
All things that thou asketh, thy daughter is free."
