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

454. Jesus, Thy Boundless Love to Me

1 Jesus, thy boundless love to me
no thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to thee,
and reign without a rival there;
thine wholly thine alone, I am:
Lord, let thy love my heart inflame.

12 O grant that nothing in my soul
may dwell but thy pure love alone;
O may thy love possess me whole,
my joy, my treasure, and my crown!
All coldness from my heart remove;
my ev'ry act, word, thought be love.

3 O Love, how cheering is thy ray!
All pain before thy presence flies;
care, anguish, sorrow melt away
where'er thy healing beams arise:
O Jesus, nothing may I see,
nothing desire or seek, but thee.

4 Still let thy love point out my way,
how wondrous things thy love hath wrought;
still lead me lest I go astray;
direct my word, inspire mythogut;
and if I fall, soon may I hear
thy voice, and know that love is near.
