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.

1 To me, dear Saviour, yes, to me,
Speak out Thy utmost will,
What Thy great love doth bid me do,
I surely can fulfil,
What Thy great love doth bid me do,
I surely can fulfil,
What Thy great love doth bid me do,
I surely can fulfil.

Chorus:
There is not in my heart left one treasure, dear Lord,
That I would not yield gladly to Thee,
Only let, in Thy mercy, Thy pleadings be heard,
They shall gladly be answered by me.

2 To me, dear Saviour, yes, to me,
Thy gracious pardon shew,
That not one sin I've ever sinned
May unforgiven go,
That not one sin I've ever sinned
May unforgiven go,
That not one sin I've ever sinned
May unforgiven go. [Chorus]

3 To me, dear Saviour, yes, to me,
The floodgates open wide,
That even I may stoop and wash
Within the crimson tide,
That even I may stoop and wash
Within the crimson tide,
That even I may stoop and wash
Within the crimson tide. [Chorus]

4 To me, dear Saviour, yes, to me,
To me, the least of all,
With all my consciousness of guilt,
Thou hast for me a call,
With all my consciousness of guilt,
Thou hast for me a call,
With all my consciousness of guilt,
Thou hast for me a call. [Chorus]

5 To me, dear Saviour, yes, to me,
Thy saving power be given,
Then shall I know why I have lived,
And what on earth is heaven,
Then shall I know why I have lived,
And what on earth is heaven,
Then shall I know why I have lived,
And what on earth is heaven. [Chorus]
