During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Representative Text

1 God gave his Son for me,
O wondrous love! From sin to set me free,
O wondrous love!
A guilty rebel I,
Bound and condemned to die,
He did not pass me by;
O wondrous love!

2 There, there at God’s right hand,
O wondrous love! I see my Saviour stand,
O wondrous love!
He makes my nature pure,
In him I am secure,
Whatever I endure;
O wondrous love!

3 He’ll give me needful grace,
O wondrous love! Soon I shall see his face,
O wondrous love!
Join those who’ve gone before,
Sorrow and pain all o’er, Heaven,
Heaven, for evermore!
O wondrous love!
