Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

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]
