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

Representative Text

1 Would you be this day made whole,
Freedom gain from sin's control?
Jesus can redeem your soul,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

Chorus:
In the darkness do not live,
Be not sad or lonely;
Jesus, light and joy can give,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

2 Jesus tenderly will lead,
Give you grace for all your need,
And your cause in Heaven's plead,--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

3 Oh, what friend can love us so?
Who, like Him, our hearts can know,
Who hath borne our ev'ry woe?
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

4 He alone our souls can guide
Over death's dark, swelling tide,
Home at last, and by His side--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]
