Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Love divine, all loves excelling

Representative Text

1. Amo Dia, tutsupera, ĝoj' ĉiela inter ni,
Restu kun ni, Vi mistera, glorajn benojn donu Vi.
Jesu, Via korkompato fluas el senlima am'.
Venu kun la savmandato, savu el infera flam'.

2. Venu Vi, Liberiganto, vivu ni per Via grac'.
De pekloga insidanto gardu nin de la minac'.
Beni Vin ni volas ĉiam, kaj Vin servi kun fervor',
Ĉesi laŭdi Vin neniam pro sindono kaj favor'.

3. Novaj kreitaĵoj indaj estu ni al Via glor'!
Al Vi estis ni savindaj, ĝin ni tenu en memor'.
Pli kaj pli en glor-ornamo kreskos ni ĝis vivofin'.
Tiam kun miranta amo ni adore laŭdos Vin.
