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.

Representative Text

1 He lives and loves, our Saviour King;
With joyful lips your tribute bring;
Repeat His praise, exalt His Name,
Whose grace and truth are till the same.

His mercy flows, an endless stream
To all eternity the same;
To all eternity, to all eternity,
To all eternity the same.

2 His hand is strong, His word endures,
His sacrifice our peace secures;
From sin and death He doth redeem,
His changeless love be all our theme. [Refrain]

3 Each day reveals His constant love,
With “mercies new” from heav’n above;
Through ages past His Word has stood;
Oh, taste and see that He is good. [Refrain]
