Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org 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)
