Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. Since the love of God has shed
Priceless blessings on my head,
I have made it my own;
I will hide it in my heart
That it never may depart,
It shall rule there alone.

The love of God within the heart
Will kindliness and warmth impart;
The soul will glow like Jesus in His tender mercy,
If the heart is made His dwelling place;
The love of God glows like a flame,
Through endless years it is the same;
The love of God will never fail nor lose its glory
Till we see Him face to face.

2. Since the Son of God came down
With His love our lives to crown,
He with us would remain;
Greater love there could not be,
Jesus died for you and me,
In our hearts, He would reign.

3. He who gave His love to me
That I might from sin be free
Bids me share it today;
“As I love you,” He has said,
“You must serve men in My stead
As you go on your way.”

4. While His love burns true and bright,
We are walking in the light,
He has shown us the road;
We His glory must reflect,
Lest our dimness and neglect
Keep some soul from it’s God.
