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

Representative Text

1 The half has never been told,
Of Jesus and His love;
The story will never grow old,
Of Jesus and His love;
He came, a child, to live with us,
To bear our earthly pain,
To teach the wayward how to live
And know that death is gain.

Refrain:
The half has never been told,
Of Jesus and His love;
The story will never grow old,
Of Jesus and His love.

2 Down from His mansions above,
The spotless Lamb of light,
So holy, on pinions of love,
In robes so pure and white—
He gave to us the fount of life,
A gracious gift to give;
He taught the ending of all strife,
Said, “Look to me and live.” [Refrain]

3 The loving Saviour hath borne
The ills creation shares,
That all of God’s children might find
The path to Him in prayer;
He gave to us redeeming love,
His songs of faith endure,
And we shall sing those songs above
On Zion’s happy shore. [Refrain]
