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. Wonderful Savior, Redeemer,
Thou in tend’rest love
Watchest o’er every believer,
From Thy throne above.

Wonderful Savior!
Merciful Savior!
My hope and Redeemer,
Who shed His blood for me.

2. Thou hast in greatest compassion
Died our souls to save;
Purchased for us our redemption,
Hope beyond the grave. [Refrain]

3. Open my heart e’er to hear Thee,
Quick to hear Thy voice;
Fill Thou my soul with Thy praises,
Let my heart rejoice. [Refrain]
