Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

There is no friend like Jesus,
So constant and so kind;
He heals the wounded spirit,
And calms the troubled mind.

The hungry soul He feedeth
With manna from His store;
And of His living water
We drink to thirst no more.

When weary is our journey,
And heavy is our load,
This constant Friend is with us,
To cheer our toilsome road.

When bright our path and joyous,
And sunshine floods the way,
Our joy He renders tenfold
More joyous every day.

There is no friend like Jesus,
So constant is His love;
The earth has seen His kindness,
'Twill be enjoyed above.

Through death's dark vale He'll lead us--
That vale He passed before;
With life immortal clothe us,
To be unclothed no more.

And in that land the fairest,
With joys that never end,
Our Lord shall stand supremely,
Our true and constant Friend.
