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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

God's Love to his Saints

My God above with smiles of love

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My God above with smiles of love,
And blissful words will say,
"Those saints of mine did once incline,
From my commands to stray.

2 "But Christ my son, my only one,
Was wounded for their sins;
So for his sake I'll pity take,
And make them welcome in.

3 I'll make them heirs and give them shares,
And they shall live with me;
I'll give them crowns instead of frowns,
And joy eternally."

4 I have a robe above this globe,
Which Jesus gave to me;
'Tis clean and white, it's pure and bright,
And thus his gift was free.

5 It cost him dear, but he was freer
Than I was to receive;
And he's got more laid up in store,
For all that will believe.

6 If any those should want to know
Where Jesus gave me this,
And ask if he elected me,
Then I could tell the yes.

7 If Christ made known unto his own,
What they'll receive at death,
There's not a saint but what would faint,
And breathe their dying breath.
