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 Loved! then the way will not be drear;
For One we know is ever near,
Proving it to our hearts so clear
That we are loved.

2 Loved with an everlasting love
By Him who left His home above,
To bring us life, and light, and love,
Because He loved.

3 Loved, when our sky is clouded o’er,
And days of sorrow press us sore;
Still will we trust Him evermore,
For we are loved.

4 Loved, when we leave our native soil,
In heathen lands to live and toil;
Under His shadows nought can foil—
Still we are loved.

5 Loved when we sing the glad new song
To Christ, for whom we’ve waited long,
With all the happy, ransomed throng—
For ever loved.
