Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
Harry Plantinga

Now to Him who loved us, gave us

Now to Him who loved us, gave us

Author: Samuel Miller Waring
Tune: TRIUMPH (Gauntlett)
Published in 22 hymnals

Representative Text

Now to him who loved us, gave us
every pledge that love could give,
freely shed his blood to save us,
gave his life that we might live,
be the kingdom,
power and glory
and thanksgiving evermore.

Waring, Samuel Miller, son of Jeremiah Waring, of Alton, Hampshire, and uncle of Anna L. Waring, was born at Alton, in March, 1792, and died at Bath, Sept. 19, 1827. His hymns appeared in his Sacred Melodies, 1826; and from that work the following, which are in common use were taken:— 1. Now to Him Who loved us, gave us. Praise to Jesus. Sometimes, "Unto Him Who loved us." 2. Plead Thou, 0 plead my cause. Jesus, the Advocate Implored.
