We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 O, condescension wonderful!
O boundless love, surpassing tho’t!
That Christ, the mighty Counsellor,
From heav’n to earth salvation brot’!

O, love divine! O, matchless grace!
O, mercy flowing full and free!
With wondrous love and winning voice,
We hear Him whisper, “Come to Me.”

2 O, joy to know that He is mine!
This wondrous Friend beyond compare!
O, joy above all human joy,
He will a place for me prepare! [Refrain]

3 O, peace that passeth human tho’t!
The peace of God so freely giv’n!
The world cannot this peace destroy,
This peace that fills the soul with heav’n! [Refrain]
