We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Sinner with your heavy load of sin and guilt,
‘Twas for you the Savior’s precious blood was spilt;
If you call upon him now this very hour,
He will send to you his saving pow’r.

Pray thro’, God will answer you;
pray through, He is ever true;
You can have an answer,
Know his pow’r anew,
If you keep on praying until you pray thro’.

2 If you know the blood has wash’d your sins away,
Still there rises up the carnal mind each day;
Pray to Him who died to make you free indeed,
This is just the blessing that you need. [Chorus]

3 Tho’ temptations come to ev’ry Christian heart,
Jesus oft has said He will the grace impart;
We can be triumphant, this I know is true,
If in faith and pow’r we will pray thro’. [Chorus]
