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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Oh, the love so full and free
That the Lord bestowed on me,
When He bade me come
To my heave\'nly home
By the way of redeeming love.

Chorus:
By the way of redeeming love,
By the way of redeeming love,
I’m going home to glory
By the way of redeeming love.

2 On the cross His life He gave,
Ev'ry dying soul to save,
And He points the way
To the realms of day
By the way of redeeming love. [Chorus]

3 I will praise the Lord in song
Till I join that blood-washed throng,
Nevermore to roam
When I reach my home
By the way of redeeming love. [Chorus]
