We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 There is a song, a glad, sweet song
That thrills this soul of mine,
Its strains extol the King of kings,
Its theme is love divine.

Refrain:
O love divine, O love divine,
The grandest song of songs,
Lift up the heart, lift up the voice,
To God all praise belongs.
O love divine, O love divine,
The grandest song of songs,
Lift up the heart, lift up the voice,
To God all praise belongs.

2 He lov’d our little world so well
His only Son He gave,
That whosoever trusts in Him
Shall know His pow’r to save. [Refrain]

3 Shall conquer sin and mortal death,
And for the right be strong!
Come then, and test this love divine,
Come, learn the glad, sweet song. [Refrain]
