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 ‘Tis sweet to know that Christ receives,
The sinner who o’er sinning grieves,
That he who comes, however vile,
Shall meet the Lord’s forgiving smile.

‘Tis sweet to know, yes, sweet to know,
That Jesus loves, the sinner so,
That from his side the crimson flow,
Doth wash him whiter than the snow.

2 ‘Tis sweet to know that on the tree,
He paid the debt for you and me,
That when we come with contrite hearts,
His precious love our Lord imparts. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis sweet to know that keeping grace,
He will bestow thro’out the race,
If we his dear commands obey,
If we but work, and watch, and pray. [Refrain]
