We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
