Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Speak to me only of Jesus,
Tell of the cross that He wore,
Tell of the shame and the sorrow,
Tell of the burden He bore.

Refrain
Speak to me only of Jesus,
Dying on Calvary’s tree,
Speak to me only of Jesus,
His name is so precious to me.

2 Speak to me only of Jesus,
Tell of His grace day by day,
Tell how the blood of atonement
Washes my guilt all away. [Refrain]

3 Speak to me only of Jesus,
Tell of His wonderful love,
Tell how He came as a Savior,
Down from the glory above. [Refrain]

4 Speak to me only of Jesus,
Tell of His mercy so free,
Tell how, when lost in the darkness,
Jesus came seeking for me. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
