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.

Representative Text

1. There’s a king from above who has wonderful love,
And is able to keep men true;
So tho’ great is your sin, if His grace you would win,
There is room in His heart for you.

There is room in His heart for you,
There is room in His heart for you;
Ocean wide and deep as sea
Is His grace and love for thee,
There is room in His heart for you.

2. If on Him you depend you will have a great friend,
Who all trials will keep you thro’;
So tho’ far you have strayed, if you ask for His aid,
There is room in His heart for you. [Refrain]

3. He has suffered and died, your transgressions to hide,
And is ready still more to do;
For He wants you to love Him on earth and above;
There is room in His heart for you. [Refrain]
