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.

Representative Text

1. O sing the power of love divine,
The precious love of Jesus,
That bids the light in darkness shine,
And wins the lost to Jesus.

O precious, pure, unchanging love,
The boundless love of Jesus;
It binds our heart in union sweet,
And makes us one in Jesus.

2. ’Tis love that conquers every fear,
The precious love of Jesus,
And now by faith has brought us near
The bleeding side of Jesus. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis love that fills the joyful heart,
And draws it up to Jesus,
Where neither life nor death can part
The sacred bonds of Jesus. [Refrain]

4. When faith and hope have ceased to shine,
And we are safe with Jesus,
We’ll praise the power of love divine
That brought us home to Jesus. [Refrain]
