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.

Representative Text

1 "What must I do?" the trembling jailor cried,
When dazed by fear and wonder;
"Believe on Christ!" was all that Paul replied,
"And you shall be saved from sin."

Chorus:
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
And you shall be saved!

2 What must I do! O weary, trembling soul,
Just turn today to Jesus;
He will receive, forgive and make you whole--
Christ alone can set you free. (Chorus)

3 His blood is all your plea for saving grace,
The precious fount of cleansing!
O come, accept His love, behold His face,
And be saved forevermore. (Chorus)
