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

CVIII. True Happiness

1 How happy is the Christian's State!
His Sins are all forgiven;
A cheering Ray confirms the Grace,
And lifts his Hopes to Heav'n.

2 Tho' in the rugged Path of Life,
He heaves the pensive Sigh;
Yet trusting in his God he finds
Deliv'ring Grace is nigh.

3 If, to prevent his wand'ring Steps,
He feels the chast'ning Rod;
The gentle Stroke shall bring him back
To his forgiving God.

4 And when the welcome Message comes
To call his Soul away;
His Soul, in Raptures shall ascend
To everlasting Day.
