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

He dearly loves me

Representative 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?

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]
