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.

809. Because He Loves Me

1 When the storm winds rage, and the rain falls fast,
And the clouds hang low above,
I shall be secure till the storm is past,
For I trust my Savior’s love;
And He knows the way, and He holds my hand,
And He will not let it go;
He will lead me home to that better land,
Just because He loves me so.

2 It was not that I was so good or great,
For my heart was vile with sin;
I had turned my back on the narrow gate,
Neither care nor lived for Him,
But I pleased myself, and I chose my way,
For His grace I did not know;
But He sought me still through the night and day,
Just because He loved me so.

3 If He loved me so when I grieved Him sore
That He sought me tenderly,
Till He won my heart, and my sins He bore,
So that I His child might be,
Will He love me less since I love Him, too,
So my heart with fervor glows?
And I haste each day all His will to do
That my willing spirit knows.

4 I will trust His love, for it e’er will last,
It is rich and warm and free;
Through the years of life it will hold me fast,
And my help and comfort be;
To my waiting heart all its treasures rare
As a sparkling stream shall flow;
In the joy of God I shall ever share,
Just because He loves me so.
