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

Full Text

1 The Saviour’s own word tells the story,
Of love so boundless and free;
And, oh, how I wonder if Jesus,
Who died for the sinner, loves me?

Refrain:
Oh, yes, yes, dearly He loves me!
This Jesus tenderly loves me;
A Saviour who died for all sinners,
Oh, I know that Jesus loves me!

2 I seek Him, tho’ I am unworthy
To ask in His kingdom to be;
Transgressions and sins, oh, how many!
Can I expect Christ to love me. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what can a merciful Father
In this, His poor prodigal, see?
And will He thus pass the more worthy,
To save such a sinner like me? [Refrain]

4 Oh, what a most wonderful story!
How others more happy could be;
In trusting this gracious Redeemer,
Who, loving the sinner, loves me. [Refrain]
