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

1 From all who dwell in Heav’n above
We hear the anthem, "God is Love!"
While thro’ the souls of all below,
His tender mercies ever flow—
While thro’ the souls of all below,
His tender mercies ever flow.

2 He sows the sun, like golden grain,
On the blue ether’s boundless plain,
Yet in the soul His mercies are
More vast, more bright than every star—
Yet in the soul His mercies are
More vast, more bright than every star.

3 Oh, while the glorious faith we own,
Be love in all our acts made known;
Then blinded eyes shall ope to see
God is not wrath, but charity—
Then blinded eyes shall ope to see
God is not wrath, but charity.

4 Teach us, O Lord, like Thee, to give
To all that love wherein we live;
Till earth below to Heav’n above
Repeats the anthem, "God is Love!"
Till earth below to Heav’n above
Repeats the anthem, "God is Love!"
