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 It is a gift from God above,
And the effects of saving grace,
To be possess'd with christian love;
To love the Lord and all his ways.
2 But where such love to God is found,
It will to fellow-men extend;
With cords of love such hearts are bound,
To help the poor and be their friend.
3 To love the God whom we can't see,
And yet not love our fellow-men;
Such love as that can never be,
And such profession is but vain.
4 They who are truly born of God,
Their blessed Saviour's mind they feel;
They have their hearts by grace renew'd
And love to do their Maker's will.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCCII
