Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Hark! my soul, seraphic music,
From angelic choirs above,
Breaks to earth the joyful tidings
That the Lord our God is love.

God is love, God is love,
Song of angel choirs above;
Hallelujah! God is love.
Paradise now helps to swell it,
Saints on earth afar go tell it,
Satan’s host can never quell it,
For the Lord our God is love.

2 See the depths of His compassion,
Giving heaven’s best to prove
By a life of pain and sorrow,
That the Lord our God is love. [Refrain]

3 Lo, I feel the Holy Spirit,
Like a peaceful, heav’nly dove,
Witnessing within my bosom
That the Lord our God is love. [Refrain]

4 Sing my soul, and all within me,
Sing till all the clouds remove,
Sing, and praise, and shout forever,
For the Lord our God is love. [Refrain]
