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.

Lovest Thou Me?

Wanderer o'er life's restless ocean

Author: W. W. Thomas
Tune: [Wand'rer o'er life's restless ocean]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Wand'rer o'er life's restless ocean,
With no spot to fold thy wing,
Sheltered one where friends and kindred,
Full of life around thee cling.
Sad or joyful, young or aged,
Whatsoe'er thy lot may be,
Tones today from heav'n are calling,
"Lovest thou me? Lovest thou me?"

2 More than wealth or worldly station,
More than pleasure, pow'r or pride,
More than human love or friendship,
More than these and all beside.
Listen to the solemn query:
'T is thy Savior speaks to thee,
Even now his voice is calling,
"Lovest thou me? Lovest thou me?"

3 Lord, thou knowest that I love thee,
Oh for grace to love thee more;
Help the weakest of thy children
Now to love thee and adore.
Lord, thou knowest that I love thee,
Quick and glad the answer be,
When I hear thy sweet voice calling,
"Lovest thou me? Lovest thou me?"
