Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Hast thou heard of that wonderful Jesus,
Who dwelt among sinners, a God?
Who in purity walk’d with the vilest,
Dispensing His favors abroad?

O that wonderful, wonderful Jesus!
He left the bright glory above,
On a world in its sin and its ruin,
To pour out His infinite love.

2 Hast thou heard of that wonderful Jesus,
Rejected by sinners of old?
He is waiting today to be gracious,
Yet slighted by numbers untold. [Refrain]

3 Hast thou heard that this wonderful Jesus,
Dwells now with the lowly in heart?
With the humble He walks in communion,
And grace He will freely impart. [Refrain]
