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, 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

1 Wer findet Worte, Dir zu danken?
O Vater, Deine Lieb' ist groß,
Ist unaussprechlich, ohne Schranken:
Du gabst den Sohn aus Deinem Schoß.
Du gabst Ihn hin, den Eingebornen,
Du sandtest Ihn zu uns herab,
Für Deine Feinde, die Verlornen,
Gabst Du Ihn hin in Tod und Grab.

2 O wohl uns, daß Du voll Erbarmen,
Daß Du, o Gott, die Liebe bist,
Daß wir in treuen Vaterarmen
So sicher ruhn durch Jesum Christ!
In Ihm gabst Du uns Heil und Leben,
Ja, alles — o wer liebt so sehr!
Ein Gott, der Seinen Sohn gegeben,
Ein solcher Gott versagt nichts mehr.
