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.

Representative Text

1 A song there is, ‘tis wondrous sweet,
The song of Jesus’ love;
And we shall oft this song repeat
In the shining realms above.

O beautiful song,
The song of redeeming love,
Like incense sweet it soars aloft
To the throne of God above.

2 Redeem’d from sin, made pure and white,
That love we’ll better know;
Up there in God’s eternal light
We shall learn how much we owe. [Refrain]

3 Whate’er we have of wealth or bliss,
That love for us hath bought;
No friend can give us love like this
For it passes human thought. [Refrain]

4 To sing that song is bliss supreme,
It rings thro’ heav’n above;
The love of God is all its theme,
And ‘tis everlasting love. [Refrain]
