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 How many times has He lightened our cares,
Over and over again!
How many times has He answered our prayres,
Over and over again!
then tell of His goodness to thee and to thine,
And tell of His mercies to me and to mine,
Repeat the old story of pardon divine,
Over and over again.

Over and over again, (and over again,)
Over and over again, (and over again,)
O what a wonderful story to tell,
Over and over again.

2 He ne'er refuses to hear, tho' we call
Over and over again,
Sends show'rs of blessing so freely on all,
Over and over again;
Oh, why are you silent so ofthen, so long,
When telling the story will turn them from wrong?
Then tell it, o tell it in praise or in song,
Over and over again. [Chorus]

3 Tho' we may wander in byways of sin,
Over and over again,
the heart of Jesus will bid us come in,
Over and over again;
then let us be willing, wherever the place,
To tell of His kindness, His pardon, His grace,
And some day in glory we'll look on His face,
Over and over again. [Chorus]
