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

Jesus loves us (Teske)

Representative Text

1. Jesus loves us,
Bends above us;
And the tenderness supreme,
Lasts forever,
Fails us never,
Lights us with its blessed beam.

2. For 'tis Jesus'
Love that frees us
From earth's night of death and sin;
Saying, "Mortal,
I'm the portal;
Come, poor sinner, enter in."

3. And the sweetness,
The completeness,
Of the shelter of his fold;
With its cheerings,
Its endearing
Light and love can ne'er be told.
