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 Wonderful love that rescued me,
Sunk deep in sin,
Guilty and vile as I could be -
No hope within;
When ev'ry ray of light had fled,
O glorious day!
Raising my soul from out the dead,
love found a way.

Chorus:
Love found a way to redeem my soul,
Love found a way that could make me whole;
Love sent my Lord to the cross of shame,
Love found a way, O praise His holy name!

2 Love bro't my Savior here to die
On Calvary,
For such a sinful wretch as I -
How can it be?
Love bridged the gulf ’twixt me and heav’n,
Taught me to pray;
I am redeemed, set free, forgiv’n -
Love found a way. [Chorus]

3 Love opened wide the gates of light
To heav’n’s domain,
Where in eternal pow'r and might
Jesus shall reign;
Love lifted me from depths of woe
To endless day;
There was no help in earth below -
Love found a way. [Chorus]
