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 Hymnary.org, 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

1 Would you know this great salvation,
In its fulness and its pow’r?
You may have it, it is for you,
Now, this very day and hour.

Refrain:
Will you pay the price? make the sacrifice?
It will cost your all, salvation to receive,
Will you pay the price? make the sacrifice?
It will cost your all, salvation to receive,

2 Would you have your sins forgiven?
Blotted out ‘neath Calv’ry’s flood?
Hallelujah! ‘tis sufficient,
Jesus’ all-atoning blood. [Refrain]

3 If to yield you are unwilling,
And from him withhold a part,
You will never know the fulness
Of salvation in your heart. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ it cost your all, yet claim it,
Crucified to self and sin;
O the glory! who can tell it,
When in Christ we live again? [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
