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,

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 So dark the night within my soul
How cruel my plight I could not see,
But yet I knew sin’s bitter toll,
And vainly struggled to be free.
O grace that knew my deepest need!
O Thou who art my Life indeed!
Through Thee the bond slave was set free;
O Christ, Thou art my victory.
2 For through the night One came to me,
His voice dispelled my grief, my fears,
“Oh, friend!” He cried, wouldst thou be free?
In me thy bondage disappears. [Refrain]
3 I yielded all; my struggles ceased;
Self died; the dear Christ lived instead
Within the soul that He released
When He came in, and self was dead. [Refrain]
4 How wondrously He keeps me now
In whom I live, who lives in me!
The throne-crown pressed upon His brow
My coronet of victory. [Refrain]Source: Victorious Life Hymns #74
