Hymnary Friends,

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.

Representative Text

And see their guilt forgiv'n;
God will pronounce the sinners just,
And take the saints to heav'n.
