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

1 Have you heard the whisper of the breeze?
God is love, God is love!
Have you heard the murm’ring of the trees,
Singing softly, sweetly, “God is love?”

Blessed song, echo on,
Glad message sound forever;
Ringing ‘neath the radiant skies above,
God is love, God is love!

2 Have you heard the birds’ exultant notes?
God is love, God is love!
Down from distant heights the carol floats,
Ringing gladly, clearly, “God is love!” [Refrain]

3 Have you heard the singing of the sea?
God is love, God is love!
Where the crested billows toss so free,
Telling, telling ever, “God is love!” [Refrain]
