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

Så älskade Gud världen all

Representative Text

1 Så älskade Gud världen all,
Att han utgaf sin ende Son,
Att hvar och en, som på honom tror,
Skall få ett evigt lif.

2 Ty däruti står kärleken,
Ej det vi hafva älskat Gud,
Men d¨ruti, att han älskat oss
Och gifvit oss sin Son.

3 Ja, därpå är Guds kärlek stor
Vorden uppenbar till oss,
Att till försoning för all vår synd
Han hafver sändt sin Son.

4 Han hafver oss sändt Jesus Krist,
Att på honom vi skola tro,
Att genom honom vi lefva må
Och älska för hans skull.
