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. 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Think of the time when you knelt at the cross,
Praying for cleansing from sin and its dross;
Weary of burdens that long had enslaved,
Do you remember the day you were saved?

Refrain:
Will you return to the Christ you once knew?
Will you obey Him who suffered for you?
Think how His banner once over you waved,
Do you remember the day you were saved?

2 Long you have wandered the dark, downward road,
Far from the joys of your Father’s abode;
Jesus there found you by evil depraved,
Do you remember the day you were saved? [Refrain]

3 Sad was your life and devoid of all peace;
Tempted, you cried for a friend to release;
Jesus appeared with the help that you craved,
Do you remember the day you were saved? [Refrain]

4 Can you forget how he saved you from sin,
Gave you His Spirit to wash you within;
Nerved you with strength as the tempter you braved,
Do you remember the day you were saved? [Refrain]
