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.

Representative Text

1 Tell the nations far and the nations near,
Of the wondrous love of the Saviour dear;
Let the gladsome news fill each heart with cheer,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love.

Wondrous love,
Wondrous love,
Tell the story far and wide,
Let the whole world know that He loved us so,
Jesus Christ, the crucified.

2 Sound His praises far o’er the rolling wave,
Tell to distant lands that His life He gave,
Men from sin and death evermore to save,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love. [Refrain]

3 With united voice let the chorus swell,
May it echo out over hill and dell,
Let the whole wide world of His mercy tell,
Tell, O tell of His wondrous love. [Refrain]
