Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

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, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. Would you know how I was saved,
Gained the peace that now I have;
How He saved me from the fall?
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Nothing of my own to claim,
Trusting only Jesus’ name;
Making Him my all in all,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

2. Poor and helpless soul was I,
Sinful and afraid to die;
Jesus heard my stammering call,
Trusting Jesus did it all. [Refrain]

3. Not by works was my reward,
But believing on the Lord;
Saved was I through faith, though small—
Trusting Jesus, that is all. [Refrain]
