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,

Full Text

1 O the great love the dear Savior has shown
To shamefully die on the tree,
Leaving his sceptre and beautiful throne
To rescue a sinner like me!

Refrain:
Oh, such wonderful love!
Oh, such wonderful love,
Jesus, my Savior, left sceptre and throne,
To rescue a sinner like me.

2 Palaces, mansions and inns had no room
For Christ, who so joyfully came
Down from yon heaven our path to illume,
And save us from sin and from shame. [Refrain]

3 Man of great sorrows and homeless was he,
But yet my Redeemer and Friend,
Pouring in infinite streams upon me,
A love that can nevermore end. [Refrain]
