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.

1 Come, let us all unite to sing, God is love;
Let heav’n and earth their praises bring, God is love;
Let ev'ry soul from sin awake,
Each in His heart sweet music make,
And sing with us for Jesus’ sake,
For God is love.

God is love! God is love!
Come, let us all unite to sing
That God is love.

2 Oh, tell to earth’s remotest bound, God is love;
In Christ we have redemption found, God is love;
His blood has washed our sins away,
His Spirit turned our night to day,
And now we can rejoice to say:
That God is love! [Chorus]

3 How happy is our portion here, God is love;
His promises our spirits cheer, God is love;
He is our sun and shield by day,
Our help, our hope, our strength and stay,
He will be with us all the way,
Our God is love! [Chorus]
