Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

3995. Love One Another

1. Precious words of Jesus,
Reaching all our need!
Truest love the message
Wrought in word and deed;
Cheer for all the lonely,
Comfort for the sad,
Sacred, blessèd duty,
Make some other glad.

Refrain
Love that never faileth,
Seeketh not her own;
Love that brings rejoicing
Drives away the tears,
Love that lives triumphant,
Thro’ eternal years!

2. Turn the tides of evil,
Cheer the fainting heart;
In the stress of battle,
Bear a noble part;
Sin has open warfare
With the young and brave,
But your hand can rescue,
And your love can save. [Refrain]

3. Love reflects the glory
Of a light divine,
Down each gloomy pathway,
Let the brightness shine;
Let such deeds of mercy
Mark your upward way,
That your path will brighten,
To the perfect day. [Refrain]
