During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

O Lord, thy love's unbounded

O Lord, thy love's unbounded

Author: John Nelson Darby
Published in 16 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Lord, thy love's unbounded!
So full, so sweet, so free!
Our thoughts are all confounded,
Whene'er we think on thee:
For us, thou cam'st from heaven,
For us to bleed and die;
That, purchased and forgiven,
We might ascend on high.

2 Oh, let this love constrain us
To give our hearts to thee;
Let nothing henceforth pain us
But that which paineth thee!
Our joy, our one endeavor,
Through suffering, conflict, shame,
To serve thee, gracious Saviour,
And magnify thy name!
