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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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.
