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

49. The Saviour's Love

1 Dear Saviour, does Thy love,
So wonderful and free,
Delight to own Thy weakest child,
Who upward looks to Thee?

O love! O wondrous love!
O love that stoops to me!
A love that covers all my sins,
And makes me free in Thee.

2 Give us a deeper love,
That loves Thy love alone;
Resigns all hope of earthly gain,
This wondrous gift to own. [Chorus]

3 Thee only would we love;
Be this our constant aim,
To lose all thought of self in Thee,
And glorify Thy name. [Chorus]

4 Then beautify us, Lord,
And may we meekly show
Our hearts to be Thy temple-home,
Where love shall ever flow. [Chorus]
