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

O love, beyond conception great

O love, beyond conception great

Published in 24 hymnals

Full Text

1 O love! beyond conception great,
That form'd the vast, stupendous plan!
Where all divine perfections meet
To reconcile rebellious man!

2 There wisdom shines in fullest blaze,
And justice all her rights maintains:
Astonish'd angels stoop to gaze,
While mercy o'er the guilty reigns.

3 Yes, mercy reigns, and justice too--
In Christ harmoniously they meet:
He paid to justice all her due,
And now He fills the mercy-seat.

4 Such are the wonders of our God,
And such th'amazing depths of grace,
To save from wrath's vindictive rod.
The sons of Adam's fallen race.

5 With grateful songs then let our souls
Surround our gracious Father's throne;
And all between the distant poles
His truth and mercy ever own.
