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 In this Canaan I have found,
Jesus leads me round by round;
God’s love shineth more and more;
And for Jesus I shall stand
And contend for all the land;
God’s love shineth more and more.

Refrain:
God’s love shineth more and more,
God’s love shineth more and more;
While this journey I pursue,
Jesus guides and leads me thro’;
God’s love shineth more and more.

2 In this holy, happy land
I am in His gracious hand;
God’s love shineth more and more;
As I pray, and shout, and sing,
Free salvation it doth bring;
God’s love shineth more and more. [Refrain]

3 In this bright and happy land,
Where our fathers used to stand,
God’s love shineth more and more,
This, the land of corn and wine,
All its riches here are mine;
God’s love shineth more and more. [Refrain]

4 Oh, praise God, in Jesus’ name
I will live and die the same;
God’s love shineth more and more;
Heights I’m gaining ev’ry day
While I journey on the way;
God’s love shineth more and more. [Refrain]

5 I am not afraid to die;
In Christ’s name my soul shall fly;
God’s love shineth more and more;
Up to Heaven I shall soar,
Praise His name forevermore;
God’s love shineth more and more. [Refrain]
