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 sweet is the story of Christ and His love,
So boundless, so precious, so free;
A perfect salvation, a fountain of joy,
A wonderful message to me.

Refrain:
O beautiful story of Christ and His love,
Of mansions prepared in His kingdom above.

2 The story grows better by telling it o’er,
And nearer it comes to the soul;
The vilest of sinners who hear and believe,
By it are made perfectly whole. [Refrain]

3 O wonderful story, repeat it again,
That beautiful story of old,
Of Christ and His glory, of Christ and His love,
‘Twill never, no, never grow old. [Refrain]
