Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I’m trusting, only trusting
In Jesus day by day;
I feel His presence nearer,
While pressing on my way;
My soul is full of glory,
And this my song shall be:
I love my blessed Savior,
Because He first loved me.

Refrain:
I love Him, I love Him,
Because He first loved me;
I trust Him, I trust Him,
Wherever I may be.
My soul is full of glory,
I sing because I’m free;
I love my blessed Savior,
Because He first loved me.

2 I’m trusting, only trusting
In Jesus every hour,
Who saves me by His mercy,
And keeps me by His pow’r;
I’ll publish His salvation
Wherever I may be;
With all my heart I love Him,
Because He first loved me. [Refrain]

3 I’m trusting, only trusting
My Savior’s hand to guide;
I know His grace sufficient,
And ask for naught beside;
My soul is on the mountain,
My home beyond the sea;
O bless the Lord! I love Him,
Because He first loved me. [Refrain]
