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 your heart be free from sin,
Have the peace of God within?
There’s a Jordan river flowing by;
Would you whiter be than snow?
To its cleansing waters go;
There’s a Jordan river flowing by.

Refrain
Flowing by, flowing by,
There’s a cleansing Jordan river flowing by;
Flowing by, flowing by,
Plunge beneath its healing waters, help is nigh.

2. Have you sought in vain for rest,
Doubted whether God knows best?
There’s a Jordan river flowing by;
Naaman found God’s word was true;
It will be the same with you,
There’s a Jordan river flowing by. [Refrain]

3. Are you tempted to declare
Other waters are more fair,
There’s a Jordan river flowing by;
He hath spoken, Wash, be clean,
Hard upon His promise lean,
There’s a Jordan river flowing by. [Refrain]

4. O, the Savior’s wounded side
Crimsons all this river’s tide,
There’s a Jordan river flowing by;
He alone hath power to save,
Trust Him for the cleansing wave,
There’s a Jordan river flowing by. [Refrain]
