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.
1 How sweet is the love of Jesus!
‘Tis dearer than life to me,
Than costliest pearl more precious,
And O, I am glad ‘tis free.
Precious love of Jesus,
Changeless, pure and free;
Precious love of Jesus
That He freely giveth me.
2 In sorrow it is my comfort,
In trouble it is my stay;
When clouds of affliction gather,
It driveth them all away. [Refrain]
3 Tho’ friendship the dearest fail me,
Tho’ loved ones may leave my side,
His love is for me unchanging,
With it I am satisfied. [Refrain]
4 And when on the heights of glory,
My eyes shall behold the king,
In rapturous praise unending,
His wonderful love I’ll sing. [Refrain]Source: Gospel Herald in Song #172
