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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

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]
