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

How rich the love, my Lord, my God

How rich the love, my Lord, my God

Author: John Relly
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 How rich the Love! my Lord, my God,
For me, a Worm, hath dy'd;
For me he shed his living Blood;
I know no God beside.

2 The source of all my Happiness
Is his eternal Name;
Nor is there ought but Dung and Dross
Besides my dearest Lamb.

3 All Things shall perish but the Word,
He stands for-ever sure;
Jesus for-ever is the Lord,
Let ev'ry Pow'r adore.

4 This Word made Flesh in Bethl'hem seen,
Incarnate was in me,
In me, and all the Sons of Men,
That he our Head might be.

5 Then up unto our Head we look,
And bless that glorious Grace,
Which shews us God's eternal Book
Unseal'd in Jesu's Face.
