We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Thy voice hath spoken, souls have heard;
Thy wondrous love hath been declared;
Now in this quiet hour,
Conviction’s arrows deeper press,
Convince of sin and righteousness,
Show forth Thy mighty power.

2 Thy hand hath torn the veil aside,
The secret sin man fain would hide,
Stands clear beneath Thy gaze,
Help now, dear Lord, each wav’ring heart
To turn from sin, from evil part,
Make this a day of days.

3 Defeat the enemy, that he
No longer in captivity
These blood-bought souls shall bind:
Grant that the weary sin-sick one,
Whom none can heal but Thou alone,
Shall full salvation find.

4 Bid chains be broken, fetters yield,
Let wounds incurable be healed,
Set longing captives free:
Hearts long defiled cleanse thro’ and thro’,
Deep in the inward part make true,
In love and purity.

5 Speak now, O Lord, Thy strong “I will,”
The waves of doubt and sorrow still,
And bid the struggling cease,
That yielded lives possessed by Thee
Henceforth Thy witnesses shall be,
Kept in Thy perfect peace.
