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

There's a love that cannot fade

Full Text

1 There’s a love that can not fade,
Nor thro’ sunshine nor thro’ shade,
But remains the same tho’ kingdoms rise and fall;
It is given free of cost,
That no soul neede’er be lost;
’Tis the love of Jesus—’tis the best of all.

Refrain:
His love is always true,
His skies are always blue,
Flow’rs are blooming in His sunshine,
Made for me and you;
His love is always true,
Shining the long days thro’
Jesus is a friend worth having,
His love is true.

2 There’s a love that knows no fear,
For the ones His heart holds dear;
And He watches o’er and keeps them in His care;
’Round them His protecting arm,
Where they’re safe and free from harm;
’Tis the love that ev’ry one may freely share. [Refrain]

3 There’s a love that never dies,
And it reaches to the skies;
It will shine forever Heav’n’s unsetting sun;
To us all ’tis given free
Now, and thro’ eternity;
’Tis the love of Jesus—true and only One. [Refrain]
