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 Jesus loves me, fondly loves me,
With a love broad as the sky;
Jesus loves me, fondly loves me,
With a love which cannot die.

Refrain:
Jesus loves my soul immortal,
O my soul, immortal soul!
Jesus loves my soul immortal,
Fondly loves me, O my soul.

2 Shall I give my soul to Jesus?
Answer quickly, O my soul!
Shall I give my soul to Jesus
Long as endless ages roll? [Refrain]

3 Oh, how freely Jesus suffered,
Suffered deep and suffered long;
And shall I not suffer for him,
Tho’ like him I suffer wrong? [Refrain]

4 Yes, at once, now and forever,
All I am and hope to be;
Wholly thine, O blessed Jesus,
Thine for all eternity. [Refrain]
