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, 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

O I Love Him

Full Text

O I love Him, O I love Him
because He first loved me, first loved me.

1 My Jesus came to earth from glory,
and now I love to tell His story
of His life and love for me.
He gave himself a ransom free,
Just to save someone like me.
That’s why I praise Him each and ev’ry day,
I praise Him each and ev’ry day. (refrain)

2 He said He’s coming back again;
Will we be free from all our sins
When Christ, our Lord returns?
I know He’s coming by and by
to take us to His home on high.
That’s why I praise Him each and ev’ry day,
I praise Him each and ev’ry day. (refrain)
