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 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 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

一 你的大愛,過於人所能度,
我救主耶穌!但不堪的我,
真要知道它的高、深、長、闊,
好叫它的能力越顯越多在我身上!

二 你的慈愛,過於人所能論,
我救主耶穌!但我的嘴唇
要向遠近罪人勸誨諄諄,
告訴他們,你愛能解憂困,並賜喜樂。

三 你的奇愛過放人所能讚,
我救主耶穌!但我的心坎
總要歌唱那愛,這大!這滿!
因為惡性如我,也得恩湛,來親近神!

四 我今雖然不能在這地方
測度、講論、頌讚愛的泱漭;
但我要帶我的虛空心房,
來到你愛的泉源良港,求你充滿!

五 我真是一個虛空的器皿,
對你從無一次戀慕深情;
但我卻能一再來你面前,
求你憐恤、幫助,得你恩典,因你愛我!

六 哦,我主,求你用愛充滿我,
領我到天上永活的江河;
讓我用簡單的信到那裏,
倚靠、鑑賞、稱羨並享受你,不再他求。

七 當我面對面看見我救主,
當我在祂的寶座前俯伏,
那時,我就要希奇並歌唱
祂的大愛如何深、高、闊、長,並要敬拜。
