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

Representative Text

1 O love, amazing love,
That wounded thou should’st be
For my transgressions, Lord,
And sacrificed for me.

Love my ransom paid,
Love my sorrow bore,
Love has opened the gate of life;
That Love will I adore.

2 Thou, like a gentle lamb,
Wast to the slaughter led,
My guilty sins were laid
Upon thy guiltless head. [Refrain]

3 The law my soul condemns,
I have no refuge there;
The law for vengeance calls,
But Mercy cries forbear. [Refrain]

4 Yes, ‘till my latest hour,
And with my latest breath,
Thy wondrous love I’ll sing,
E’en thro’ the gates of death. [Refrain]
