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.

Representative Text

1 Ye who the love of a mother have known,
There is a love sweeter far you may own,
Love all-sufficient for sin to atone;
Jesus is dearer than all.

Refrain:
Dearer than all, yes, dearer than all,
He is my King, before Him I fall;
No friend like Jesus my soul can enthrall,
Jesus is dearer, far dearer than all.

2 Jesus entreats you in Him to confide,
Make Him your constant companion and guide;
He can do more than the whole world beside;
Jesus is dearer than all. [Refrain]

3 Heaven, with all of its beauty so rare,
With my Redeemer can never compare;
He is the glory transcendent up there;
Jesus is dearer than all. [Refrain]
