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 Rich blessing, oft has earth to give,
And heav’n has much in store,
For him alone “whom Jesus loved”—
Oh, may I love Him more.

The one, the one whom Jesus loved,
Best hope of life for me,
To be the one whom Jesus loved,
Is heav’n on earth for me.

2 Fain would I lay my burdens down,
My sins at Jesus’ feet;
‘Tis all I have, ‘tis all I wish,
To be in Him complete. [Refrain]

3 To share the love of Christ my Lord,
His love, so full, so free;
All I could hope, all I could ask,
‘Tisall my earthly plea. [Refrain]
