Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Let us sing of the love of the Lord,
As now to the cross we draw nigh;
Let us sing to the praise of the God of all grace,
For the love that gave Jesus to die.

Refrain:
O the love that gave Jesus to die,
The love that gave Jesus to die;
Praise God, it is mine, this love so divine.
The love that gave Jesus to die.

2 O how great was the love that was shown
To us!—we can never tell why—
Not to angels, but men; let us praise Him again
For the love that gave Jesus to die. [Refrain]

3 Now this love unto all God commends,
Not one would His mercy pass by;
“Whosoever shall call,” there is pardon for all
In the love that gave Jesus to die. [Refrain]

4 Who is he that can separate those
Whom God doth in love justify?
Whatsoever we need He includes in the deed,
In the love that gave Jesus to die. [Refrain]
