Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

1 Oh! ‘twas love that brought me to Him,
And ‘tis love that keeps me there;
By His grace it was I knew Him,
Now my Saviour dear and fair.

Refrain:
Love and grace—His love and grace—
I will sing in every place,
Till I reach that blissful shore,
Where I’ll praise Him evermore.

2 Dark it was before I found Him,
And the way I could not see;
Now the light that shines around Him,
As I follow, falls on me. [Refrain]

3 Now it is by faith I view Him,
As I walk this narrow way;
But He soon will call me to Him,
In that bright approaching day. [Refrain]

4 Then my joy will be for ever;
There no clouds will intervene;
And the darkness comes there never;—
I shall see Him as I’m seen. [Refrain]
