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

Representative Text

1 For me, for me the Savior came,
For me he died the death of shame;
He love me in my lost estate;
The love of Jesus, oh, how great.

He loved even me
He loved even me
He loved, and gave himself to die,
That I his child might be.

2 Oh, love divine, how wondrous free,
‘Twas love which brought him to the tree;
‘Twas love ope’d wide the gate of heave’n,
‘Tis love that speaks our sins forgiv’n. [Refrain]

3 Oh, love of Christ, how deep, how high!
My soul does on that love rely;
Oh, love, how strong, oh love, how pure,
Through love divine my life’s secure. [Refrain]

4 Come, sinner, come and kiss his feet,
Accept just now the message sweet;
Your wounded heart for healing bring,
Receive his touch and gladly sing. [Refrain]
