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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Since on my Savior I believed

Representative Text

1 Since on my Saviour I believed,
His beams around me shine;
The Spirit's witness I received,
I know that He is mine.

"I know whom I have believed,
and am persuaded that He is able
To keep what I have committed
unto Him against that day."

2 I know His love, His faithful care;
His mighty saving pow'r;
His willingness to answer pray'r,
His grace in sun and show'r. [Chorus]

3 In His dear wounded hands I leave
All that concerneth me;
The flow'rs that please, the thorns that grieve,
Shall fraught with blessing be. [Chorus]

4 Tho' all things else should pass away,
He changeless, would remain.
So will I sing, till dawns His day,
Faith's jubilant refrain. [Chorus]
