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

Where'er the gospel truth is taught

Representative Text

1 Where'er the Gospel truth is taught,
The way of life to light is brought--
The ignorant are made to know,
Their Saviour, and to serve him too.

2 The greatest gifts on man bestow'd,
That is to know the living God;
And Jesus Christ his only son,
And what he hath for sinners done.

3 Jesus who for our sins aton'd,
Will be confess'd and freely own'd!
The gifts he doth for us provide,
Are by the Holy Ghost applied.

4 What changes in the heart take place,
When sinners feel the work of grace;
They feel the pow'rful Gospel word,
And know that Jesus is their Lord.

5 The pow'rs of darkness are dispell'd!
The soul with light and life is fill'd--
Enabled by a heav'nly pow'r,
To love their Saviour evermore.

6 Tho' diff'rent gifts the spirit give,
Yet all from him alone derive;
Sufficient grace withal is giv'n,
To fit each seeking soul for heav'n.
