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

Full Text

1. O love surpassing human love,
The love divine for sinners lost;
In love God gave His only Son,
His shameful death salvation’s cost.

Refrain
O blessèd Savior, by Thy pain,
The sinner reaps eternal gain.

2. God loved us when we would not have
His blessèd Son to be our Lord;
And freely, fully He forgave,
When we believed His holy Word. [Refrain]

3. The Son of God in wondrous love,
On Calv’ry’s cross was slain for me;
He paid my debt, He bore my load,
In His own body on the tree. [Refrain]
