Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

1 Truest Lover of thy People,
Nought can turn thy Heart from me;
In thy Death thy poor Disciple
Still obtains true Liberty,
Thy blest Word, and Kind Behaviour,
Death and Torments, Wounds and Blood,
Still assures me, O my Saviour,
That thou art my Lord, my God.

2 From thee I can never wander
Fatally, but shall abide
In that bleeding Fountain yonder,
Shelter'd in thy pierced Side:
There my Jesus freely gives me
All the Glory he's receiv'd;
As he dy'd, so now he lives me;
This is Heav'n, when once believ'd.
