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.

O what a message is thine to me

Representative Text

1 O what a message is Thine to me,
Jesus, my Lord and King:
Tenderly calling, my soul to Thee,
Jesus, my Saviour and King;
Tenderly calling, where I may behold,
Treasures more precious than rubies or gold,
Treasures that sparkle in realms of day,
Never to fade away.

Wonderful love to me,
Wonderful love from Thee;
Now and forever my song shall be,
Wonderful love from Thee.

2 Gladly the message of life I hear,
Jesus, my Lord and King:
Sweeter than music Thy voice so dear,
Jesus, my Saviour and King;
Thou art my Shepherd and I am Thy sheep,
Over me gently a watch Thou wilt keep,
Safe in the fold with the pure and blest,
Grant that I still may rest. [Chorus]

3 O what a rapture that ne'er shall cease,
Jesus, my Saviour and King:
Beautiful pastures so verdant and fair,
Thou art directing and leading me there,
O I can never Thy love repay,
Jesus, my Hope, my Way. [Chorus]
