More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today?

1 “Whosoever,” saith the Lord,
And pardon for my sins I see;
For I believe and trust his word,
And “whosoever” must mean me.

Refrain:
The word of God hath spoken
In promises unbroken,
And pardon for my sins I see;
There’s light on Calv’ry’s mountain,
And life in Calv’ry’s fountain,
And then there’s “whosoever,” and that means me!

2 Nothing but myself I bring,
And of my wins would pardoned be;
So, weeping, to thy cross I cling,
For “whosoever” must mean me. [Refrain]

3 Should I fail to know his grace,
Or turn away from Calv’ry’s tree,
I’ll cry, while looking in his face,
That “whosoever” still means me. [Refrain]

4 Open then, O pearly gates,
And let my ransomed soul come in,
My Saviour for my coming waits,
His blood has covered all my sin. [Refrain]
