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

一 神阿,你為何故
賜下耶穌基督,
你的親愛兒子,
來為罪人受死?
無他,乃是你的大愛,
無他,乃是你的大愛,
叫你這樣捨去心愛。

二 神,你兒子為何
離開天上寶座,
受苦直到命絕,
流出祂的寶血?
無他,乃是祂的大愛,
無他,乃是祂的大愛,
叫祂這樣為我受害。

三 甚麼感動你心,
叫你賜下聖靈,
帶來天上平安,
充滿我們心坎?
無他,乃是你的大愛,
無他,乃是你的大愛,
叫你這樣差遣祂來。

四 神阿,你恩這大!
我愛實在太差!
我心應當湧出
感謝、讚美、歡呼。
求主使我,因你大愛,
求主使我,因你大愛,
向你歌頌直到萬代。
