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.

Behold What Love

Representative Text

1 Behold what love, yes, love divine,
The Father showed to thee,
In that He gave His only Son,
Thy soul from sin to free.

Such love cannot be fathomed,
’Tis like the boundless sea;
His broken heart so wounded,
Is bleeding now for thee.

2 He gave His life to make thee whole,
He shed His blood for all,
To heal the body, save the soul—
Then come, for mercy call. [Refrain]

3 Oh, depths of love to mortals lost,
He suffered on the tree;
Our only hope of heaven cost
His blood—’twas all for thee. [Refrain]

4 The love of Christ is warm and free,
We live because He died;
His drops of mercy fall on thee,
And all the world beside. [Refrain]
