Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

It Can Never Be Told

Representative Text

1 How great is the kindness of Jesus our King,
Who came from His glory, salvation to bring!
who tells us, on Him all our sins may be rolled,--
His great loving-kindness can never be told.

Refrain:
It can never be told, It can never be told,
His great loving-kindness can never be told.

2 He healeth the sick, and the lame, and the blind;
He leadeth His flock like a shepherd most kind;
He bringeth the lost one again to His fold,--
His great loving-kindness can never be told. [Refrain]

3 He grieves for the erring whenever they fall;
He pardons transgressions, forgetting them all;
He blesses the young, and He comforts the old,--
His great loving-kindness can never be told. [Refrain]

4 For us He hath builded, where cometh no night,
A beautiful home in a city of light;
His face He has promised that we shall behold,--
His great loving-kindness can never be told. [Refrain]
