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

1 You’ve a friend who’s interceding,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
At the throne He’s for you pleading,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Oh do not His offer spurn,
To His love unbounded turn,
And His tender precepts learn,
Jesus saves, Yes, He saves.

2 There is glory for you waiting,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Then, my friends, why this debating,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Come to Him, oh come today;
All your doubts He’ll drive away;
From the fold no longer stray,
Jesus saves, Yes, He saves.

3 All your sins shall be forgiven,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
From your heart all fear be driven,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Jesus bids you come to Him,
He will cleanse you from all sin;
And a heav’nly crown you’ll win,
Jesus saves, Yes, He saves.

4 Do your sins now cause you sorrow,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Wait not then until tomorrow,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
There is danger in delay;
Turn to Him, Oh, turn today,
He will take your sins away,
Jesus saves, Yes, He saves.
