Hymnary Friends,

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 I would sing to you of Jesus,
And His power to fully save—
He who left His throne in glory,
For our souls a ransom gave.

Refrain:
Can it be your heart is hardened?
Don’t you feel His presence nigh,
Whisp’ring softly, telling ever,
That your soul unsaved must die?

2 I would sing to you of Jesus,
Of His heavenly love so free,
Of His waiting to be gracious,
He who died on Calvary. [Refrain]

3 I would sing to you of Jesus,
Of His grace so full and free;
By this grace we live and conquer,
For Christ gives the victory. [Refrain]

Orlando S. Grinnell was better known as a preacher than a songwriter. Still, the Wayne pastor's single hymn was a hit, not for its timeless melody but for its title. In 1921, the minister wrote a hymn for his flock to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Wayne Congregational Church. Grinnell titled it "The Little Home Church by the Wayside." http://articles.chicagotribune.com/199 Go to person page >
