Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Ye who profess to love the Lord

Ye who profess to love the Lord

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ye who profess the Lord to love,
Let all your lives and actions prove,
With pure desires and ardent zeal,
Attach'd to Christ to do his will.

2 Walk ye in love as christians ought,
Remember ye are dearly bought,
And ransom'd with the greatest price,
When Jesus died our sacrifice.

3 A sacrifice of sweetest smell
As pleas'd the righteous father well,
When his dear precious blood was spilt,
It then atton'd for all our guilt.

4 Amazing love beyond degree!
No great love could ever be,
O christians take this love in view!
And learn what sovereign love can do.

5 This love renews the soul within,
And makes the mind avers'd to sin;
All works of darkness are denied
Reprov'd, condemn'd and mortified.
