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 O what am I, that I should be
The object of God's wondrous grace,
That He should send His Son to me,
That I might see Him face to face?

REFRAIN:
It was for me, It was for me;
For me He left His throne above;
His grace, His goodness all for me,
For me, the ocean of His love.

2 That He should give His Son for me,
A sacrifice of love divine;--
Of love as boundless as the sea,
That I might call the Saviour mine. [Refrain]

3 O wondrous love, that He should leave
His throne and come to earth for me;
Should give His life my soul to save,--
The ransom pay, that sets me free. [Refrain]

4 A life of service, death of shame,
Ensample true for all--for me:--
O shall I not adore His name,
Thro' time and thro' eternity! [Refrain]
