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.

1 When He took my sins away!
Jesus came to me to stay,
And He changed my night to day,
He has filled my heart with praise,
Here I’ll Ebenezer raise,
O how pleasant are His ways!

Hallelujah! glory! glory!
I will tell the blessed story;
Jesus gives me grace and glory!
He’s my Savior!

2 When I’m tempted, when I’m tried,
With Him ever at my side,
Naught of harm can e’er betide,
He is all in all to me,
He gives perfect victory,
Beauties new in Him I see!
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 He has cleansed me, this I know,
And He keeps me here below,
As a conqueror I go,
To the Canaan land I’m led,
On rich bounty I am fed,
“More to follow” He has said,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 He’s preparing me a place,
Soon I’ll see Him face to face,
How I’ll sing redeeming grace,
With the blood-bought robed in white,
Where there cometh no more night;
That blest city’s just in sight!
Hallelujah! [Refrain]
