Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Since Jesus came from heaven’s throne
With love, redeeming love;
The greatest boon to mortals known
Is love, redeeming love.

‘Tis love, redeeming love,
Love, redeeming love,
The greatest treasure in the world
Is love, redeeming love.

2 The grace that seeks us when we roam,
Is love, redeeming love;
The guide that leads the wand’rer home,
Is love, redeeming love. [Refrain]

3 The sweetest fellowship is found,
In love, redeeming love;
The greatest joys on earth, abound
Thro’ love, redeeming love. [Refrain]

4 Of all the fairest suns that shine,
Is love, redeeming love;
The light that makes our lives divine,
Is love, redeeming love. [Refrain]
