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.

Love divine from Jesus flowing

Representative Text

1 Love divine, from Jesus flowing,
Living waters rich and free,
Wondrous love without a limit,
Flowing from eternity;
Boundless ocean,
I would cast myself on thee.

2 Love surpassing understanding,
Angels would the mystery scan,
Yet so tender that it reaches
To the lowest child of man.
Let me, Jesus,
Fuller know redemption’s plan.

3 Love that pardons past transgression,
Love that cleanses every stain,
Love that fills to overflowing
Yet invites to drink again;
Precious fountain,
Which to open Christ was slain.

4 From my soul break every fetter,
Thee to know is all my cry;
Saviour, I am thine for ever,
Thine I’ll live and thine I’ll die,
Only asking
More and more of love’s supply.
