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,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 The bless'd and saving grace of God
Doth plainly now appear;
The Gospel truth's are understood,
By all who wish to hear.
2 Such light and knowledge as we need,
That is on us bestow'd,
That which enlightens us indeed,
To know the living God.
3 This grace that hath salvation brought,
It proves the saving means;
And thereby we are likewise taught,
To mortify our sins.
4 Ungodliness and worldly lust
They must be crucified,
And ev'ry base desire must
By christians be denied.
5 A holy godly life to live,
Must be our care and aim,
And for each blessing we receive
To praise the Saviour's name.
6 This saving grace affords us hope,
And knowledge, love and pow'r,
And we with confidence look up
To Jesus every more.
