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 I will sing the love of Jesus,
Greater love was never known;
Yielding up His life for sinners,
Oh! what love to me was shown.

I will sing, I will sing,
As my days are on the wing;
And my song shall be of Jesus,
My Redeemer, and my King.

2 I will sing the words of Jesus,
Words of life from lips divine,
Full of comfort, joy, and courage,
Precious to this soul of mine. [Refrain]

3 I will sing the grace of Jesus,
Which such wonders will achieve,
For by grace I claim redemption,
Since in Him I do believe. [Refrain]

4 I will sing the name of Jesus,
Hope of life that is to be;
Sweeter name was never spoken,
Oh! how dear it is to me. [Refrain]
