During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

1. O, the depth of love divine!
Jesus died for me;
O, the holy joy that’s mine!
Jesus died for me.

He died for me, He died for me;
Jesus died for me;
His life He gave, my soul to save;
For Jesus died for me.

2. O, the priceless gift of love,
Jesus died for me;
O, the blessèd life I have,
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

3. O, the grace, abounding grace,
Jesus died for me;
O, the peace, abiding peace,
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]
