We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 God loved the world of sinners lost
And ruined by the fall;
Salvation full, at highest cost,
He offers free to all.

Refrain:
O ‘twas love, ‘twas wondrous love,
The love of God to me;
It brought my Saviour from above,
To die on Calvary!

2 E’en now by faith I claim him mine,
The risen Son of God;
Redemption by his death I find,
And cleansing through the blood.

3 Love brings the glorious fulness in,
And to his saints makes known
The blessèd rest from inbred sin,
Through faith in Christ alone.

4 Believing souls, rejoicing go;
There shall to you be given
A glorious foretaste, here below,
Of endless life in Heaven.
