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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Once again I want to hear it,
Story sweet and story old;
Sweeter than the sweetest music,
Richer far than gems of gold;
Tell it to me, tell it to me,
Story of the Saviour’s love,
Known on earth, and known in glory,
Sweet below, and sweet above.

Refrain:
Tell it to me, tell it to me,
Once again the old, old Name,
First on earth, and first in glory,
Still the best and still the same.

2 Once again the song ascending
To the Lord who died for me,
Let me feel that He is hearing!
How I long His face to see!
Mercy, mercy, like a fountain,
Springing up and running o’er,
Life and love for thirsty millions,
Life and love for millions more! [Refrain]

3 Once again, oh, tell the story
Of the glory yet to be,
O’er the walls of shining jasper,
O’er the bright and crystal sea;
I will listen, I will praise Him,
And, amid a world of care,
Bear the cross without repining,
Thinking of the glory there! [Refrain]
