We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the name we love so well,
Its wondrous sweetness who can tell?
Our hearts enraptured on it dwell—
Jesus, precious Jesus.

O name so sweet! O name I love!
I’ll ever sing thy wondrous praise;
The charm of earth and heav’n above—
Jesus, precious Jesus.

2 No other name can e’er be found
To save from sin the earth around;
There’s power in its melting sound—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]

3 These longing hearts of ours oft yearn
Fresh secrets of thy love to learn;
And deep within our spirits burn—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Thy name to cheer us when we weep—
To hear above the waters deep,
Resounding in thy conq’ring step—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]
