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

Freely give

Would you win a Savior's blessing

Representative Text

1 Would you win a Saviour's blessing?
Freely, freely give;
Would you see his work progressing?
Freely, freely give;
Let your souls with love expand,
Open wide a liberal hand;
Would you follow God's command?
Freely, freely give.

2 With a cheerful heart and willing,
Freely, freely give;
Like the dew its balm distilling,
Freely, freely give;
Have you little? Give your mite;
O how precious in his sight!
He your off'ring will requite;
Freely, freely give.

3 Give to spread the grand Old Story,
Freely, freely give;
Give to speed the light of glory,
Freely, freely give;
Would you gain a rich reward
In the harvest of the Lord?
Then obedient to his word,
Freely, freely give.
