Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 For me He left the realms of light,
And wandered thro’ earth’s dreary night;
He tasted ev’ry bitter woe,
And all because He loved me so.

Refrain:
He loved me so! He loved me so!
My Saviour loved me so!
My heart, my life to Him I owe,
Because He loved me so.

2 From heav’n to earth for me He came,
For me He bore the scorn and shame;
For me He suffer’d here below,
And all because He loved me so. [Refrain]

3 O blessed Saviour, take my heart,
And let me ne’er from Thee depart;
My life, my all to Thee I owe,
For Thou, O Christ, hath loved me so. [Refrain]
