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.

By love never failing

Representative Text

1 By love never failing, love gentle and kind,
Love showing forth daily the Master’s own mind,
By love that in serving new blessings will find,
Let others see Jesus in you.

Refrain:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story reflecting His glory,
Let others see Jesus in you.

2 By pow’r, when temptations are surging around,
To sing of the grace that still more will abound,
So press on in conflict till praises resound;
Let others see Jesus in you. [Refrain]

3 By smiles that come freely from some hidden spring,
By songs that to Jesus will joyfully ring;
By words that to others, salvation will bring,
Let others see Jesus in you. [Refrain]
