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.

1 There is a song I never tire of singing,
It is a song which down the ages rings;
Of love divine, so pure and strong and changeless,
Naught in this world such peace and joy can bring.

Refrain:
O song sublime of love divine,
Ring out thy story to all the list’ning world;
Soon it may be o’er land and sea,
To every nation love’s banner be unfurled.

2 The sweetest song e’er sung by men or angels,
All nations join and swell the glad refrain;
Of Him who gave His life a willing off’ring,
Who died for all, will soon in glory reign. [Refrain]

3 Oh, herald wide the song of full redemption,
Till all the world shall fall at His dear feet;
And own Him King whose love is e’er unchanging,
While o’er and o’er the story we repeat. [Refrain]
