Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

By simple faith

Representative Text

1 ’Tis simple faith that breaks the power
And sets us free from sin,
’Tis simple faith unlocks the gate
Of Heav’n and lets us in.

Fully believing, always receiving,
Blessing we ask of the Lord;
Gifts without measure,
Poured from His treasure—
Answers to faith in His word.

2 Just simple faith in Christ will save
The humblest trembling soul;
There’s none so poor, and none so sick,
But He will make them whole. [Refrain]

3 By simple faith we bring to Him,
Not wondrous words of prayer,
But humbly bring a contrite heart,
And trust, and leave it there. [Refrain]

4 Thus simple faith and perfect love
Shall lift my soul so high,
’Twill give a crown the stars above,
A home beyond the sky. [Refrain]
