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

359. Jesus, Thy Mercies Are Untold

1 Jesus, thy mercies are untold
through each returning day;
thy love exceeds a thousandfold
whatever we can say.

2 O joy of ev'ry contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
to those who ask, how kind thou art,
how good to those who seek!

3 But what to those who find?
Ah, this nor tongue nor pen can show;
the love of Jesus, what it is
none but his loves ones know.

4 Jesus, our only joy be thou,
as thou our prize wilt be;
in thee be all our glory now
and through eternity.
