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 Sinners, sinners, do ‘nt you see,
The way is now prepared; hallelujah!
What Christ has done for you and me,
Though we ‘ve been much degraded; hallelujah!
And very heavy laden, hallelujah!
With sin and much temptation; hallelujah!

2 When we are tempted, when we are tried,
We must go and bow to Jesus; hallelujah!
Wo to us was crucified,
To appeal the wrath of justice; hallelujah!
What a wonder was King Jesus, hallelujah!
Who completed our salvation; hallelujah.

3 Brethren, brethren, do ’nt you feel,
This to be your bounden duty; hallelujah!
To walk the self-denial road,
In the view of suffering Jesus; hallelujah!
Who arose and went to heaven, hallelujah!
In the presence of eleven; hallelujah!

4 Just behold him going to the tomb,
To prepare a way for dying; hallelujah!
They embalmed him with some sweet perfume;
It was the act of purifying; hallelujah!
Ah! but what do you think about dying;
Do n’t you think ’t is very trying; hallelujah!

5 A few more suffering days below
And we like Jesus will be buried; hallelujah!
In the coming day I know,
We to heaven will be carried; hallelujah!
Then we ‘ll go both soul and body, hallelujah!
To live with god forever; hallelujah!
