During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

Freely, freely

Representative Text

1 That is how the Father gave—
Freely, freely, freely;
That’s how Jesus came to save—
Freely, freely, freely.
’Twas His mercy took us in;
Dark in deed our lot had been.
Had He not atoned for sin
Freely, freely, freely.

2 So to Him ourselves we give—
Freely, freely, freely;
For His sake henceforth to live—
Freely, freely, freely.
Lord, our selfishness destroy!
Time, and strength and wealth and joy,
For Thy cause will we employ
Freely, freely, freely.

3 Let the living waters flow—
Freely, freely, freely;
Let the Gospel message go—
Freely, freely, freely.
That’s a glorious work to do!
To the Great Commission true;
Give as He has given you—
Freely, freely, freely.
