Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Sing, my soul from bondage free,
Israel’s God thy God will be;
In the dark and foamy sea
Pharaoh’s host shall buried be.

Sing, my soul, from bondage free;
Israel’s God thy God will be.

2 “Sweets of sin”—delusive dream!
Burning thirst and poisonous stream;
Found of Life thy streams outpour,
Let me drink and thirst no more. [Refrain]

3 Fainting on the desert way,
For my “daily bread” I pray;
Bread of Life, thy Life I need,
Let me ever on thee feed. [Refrain]

4 When the enemy is nigh,
Lord, to thee, to thee I cry;
Save me in the trying hour,
Save my soul from Satan’s power. [Refrain]
