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.

1 There's a song in my heart that my lips cannot sing,
'Tis praise in the highest to Jesus, my King;
Its music each moment is thrilling my soul,
For I was a sinner, but Christ made me whole,

Chorus:
A sinner made whole! a sinner made whole!
The Savior hath bought me and ransomed my soul!
My heart it is singing, the anthem is ringing,
For I was a sinner, but Christ made me whole.

2 I shall stand one day faultless and pure by His throne,
Transformed from my image conformed to His own;
Then I shall find words for the song of my soul,
For I was a sinner, but Christ made me whole, [Chorus]

3 All the music of heaven, so perfect and sweet,
Will blend with my song and will make it complete;
Thro' ages unending the echoes will roll,
For I was a sinner, but Christ made me whole, [Chorus]
