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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. You have heard of the story of Jesus—
Of His grace flowing boundless and free,
But there’s no one can tell you the fullness
Of His wonderful love for me.

Refrain
His love for me, His love for me!
High as the heav’n, deep as the sea;
Love that will last thro’ eternity,
His love for me, His love for me!

2. You have heard how He blessed little children:
Come, all ye that are weary, said He;
So I came, and He gave me the blessing
Of His wonderful love for me. [Refrain]

3. You have heard how the blind, as they sought Him,
Found their sight when He bade them to see;
So my sin-blinded eyes have been opened
By His wonderful love for me. [Refrain]

4. You have heard how He spake to the tempest—
How the words, Peace, be still! calmed the sea;
So my soul found the peace that it longed for
In His wonderful love for me. [Refrain]
