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.

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.

Representative Text

1 Because of His love the Savior died,
For sin of the world was crucified;
With His own blood our ransom paid,
And for our souls deliv’rance made.

Because of His love, His sacrifice!
Because of His love! O what a price!
He suffered and died, was crucified,
Because of His love, because of His love.

2 Because of His love, O blessèd thought,
Were wonderful deeds of mercy wrought;
The wind and wave obeyed His will—
Hushed by His wondrous Peace—be still. [Refrain]

3 Because of His love, His blest command,
We’ll send the glad word to every land;
His name, above all names we’ll sing,
And crown Him Savior, Priest and King. [Refrain]
