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

Love never faileth

Representative Text

1 Out in the darkness, Shadow'd by sin,
Souls are in bondage, Souls we would win.
How can we win them? How show the way?
"Love never faileth," Love is the way.
"Love never faileth," Love is the way.

2 Think how the Master Came from above,
Suffer'd on Calv'ry. Breathing out love;
Think how he loves us. E'en when we stray?
We must love others, Love is his way,
We must love others, Love is his way.

3 See, they are waiting, Looking at you,
Furtively watching All that you do:
Seeming so careless, Harden'd and lost.
"Love never faileth," Count not the cost,
"Love never faileth," Count not the cost.

4 "Love never faileth," Love is pure gold;
Love is what Jesus Came to unfold.
Make us more loving, Master, we pray;
Help us remember Love is thy way,
Help us remember Love is thy way.
