Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Oh, the precious love of Jesus,
Growing sweeter day by day,
Turning all my heart so joyous,
To a heav’nly melody.

Refrain:
Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
In life’s journey He will lead thee;
Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
He will lead thee all the way.

2 But we can not know the fullness
Of the Savior’s wondrous love,
Till we see and know His glory,
In the heav’nly home above. [Refrain]

3 Come and taste the love of Jesus,
At His feet thy burdens lay;
Trust Him with thy grief and sorrow,
Bear this joyful song away. [Refrain]
