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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

280. Sweeter as the Years Go by

1 Of Jesus’ love that sought me
When I was lost in sin--
Of wondrous grace that brought me
Back to His fold again--
Of heights and depths of mercy
Far deeper than the sea,
And higher than the heavens,
My theme shall ever be.

Chorus:
Sweeter as the years go by,
Sweeter as the years go by;
Richer, fuller, deeper,
Jesus’ love is sweeter,
Sweeter as the years go by.

2 He trod in old Judea
Life’s pathway long ago--
The people thronged about Him
His saving grace to know;
He healed the brokenhearted
And caused the blind to see;
And still His great heart yearneth
In love for even me. (Chorus)

3 ’Twas wondrous love which led Him
For us to suffer loss--
To bear without a murmur
The anguish of the cross;
With saints redeemed in glory,
Let us our voices raise,
Till heav’n and earth re-echo
With our Redeemer’s praise. (Chorus)
