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 divine, amazing Love!
That brought to earth, from Heav'n above,
The Son of God, for us to die,
That we might dwell with Him on high.

Chorus:
He died for you, He died for me,
And shed His blood to make us free;
Upon the cross of Calvary,
The Saviour died for you and me.

2 For us the crown of thorns He bore;
For us the robe of scorn He wore;
He conquer'd death, and rent the grave,
And lives again our souls to save. [Chorus]

3 O wand'rer, come, on Him believe,
His offer'd grace by faith receive;
Awake, arise, and hear Him call,
The feast is spread, there's room for all. [Chorus]
