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.

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

Representative Text

1 Up! away! help tell the story
Of this grace abounding glory,
Ransomed ones, with much forgiven;
Point the way to peace and heaven.

Hallelujah! grace abounding,
This the news thro’ earth resounding,
Christ bestowing—glorious Giver—
Grace is flowing—blessed river!

2 Up! away! the time redeeming;
Noontide light e’en now is beaming,
They who long have slept, are waking,
Nations from sin’s thralldom breaking. [Refrain]

3 Grace abounding, onward going,
Just for sinners overflowing;
Wooing, cleansing, ever healing,
Love of heav’n to hearts revealing. [Refrain]

4 All thro’ grace are robes made whiter
Than the snow; and crowns are brighter
That are God’s beloved adorning,
Than the brightest star of morning. [Refrain]

5 Up! away! help tell the story
Of this grace-abounding glory,
Softly speak of Calv’ry’s mountain,
Shout beside the cleansing fountain. [Refrain]
