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 Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today?

1 My Lord has done so much for me, thro’ all the passing days,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ I spend eternity in songs of joy and praise,
Still, I cannot tell it all.

Refrain:
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell you all he’s done for me, for me;
When on the cross he died,
For my sins was crucified,
It was freely done for you and me.

2 He puts a song upon my lips, and tho’ I sing for aye,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
Tho’ I should sing his wondrous love each moment of the day,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]

3 My falt’ring tongue in vain would speak the wonders of his grace,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ my soul in faith may view the glories of his face,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ he has saved my soul from sin and banished all my fears,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ I sing around his throne a thousand thousand years,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]
