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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When I with sin was all defiled,
And sinking down in woe,
The blessed Saviour on me smiled,
And washed me white as snow.

Refrain:
Oh, plunge beneath the crimson flood,
And wash thy sins away;
For thee the Saviour shed His blood—
He’ll save, He’ll save today.

2 The joy the bliss of that glad hour,
No mortal tongue can tell,
When Jesus by His mighty power,
Saved my poor soul from hell. [Refrain]

3 By faith I tremblingly drew near,
And did my guilt confess;
He saw the penetential tear,
And deigned my soul to bless. [Refrain]

4 Dear sinner, hear the Saviour say,
In tones forever blest:
“I am the Life, the Truth, the Way!
In me ye shall find rest.” [Refrain]
