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

631. Jesus, Your Boundless Love to Me

1 Jesus, your boundless love to me
no thought can reach, no tongue declare.
O let my heart your dwelling be;
come, reign without a rival there.
Yours fully, yours alone I am;
O let your love my heart inflame.

2 O grant that nothing in my soul
may dwell, but your pure love alone;
O may that love possess me whole,
my joy, my treasure, and my crown.
All coldness from my heart remove;
my every act, word, thought, be love.

3 O love, how gracious is your way;
all fear before your presence flies.
Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away
where'er your healing beams arise.
O Jesus, nothing may I do,
but seek my joy in serving you.

4 In suffering, be your love my peace;
in weakness, be your love my power;
and when the storms of life shall cease,
O Jesus, in that final hour,
for me be rod and staff and guide,
and draw me safely to your side.
