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

CXLIX. O Happy where such grace is found

1 O Happy where such grace is found,
That works the love of God;
Where souls with charity abound,
To shew itself abroad.

2 This proves the glory of the cause,
For which the Church contends;
Defends the doctrine of the Cross,
On which our hope depends.

3 This hope still bids us to endure,
And patiently to wait:
Till God reveals his love and pow'r
To change our mournful state.

4 Those tribulations and distress,
For Jesus' sake we bear;
They are sure tokens of his grace,
His providence and care.

5 With Christ the Lord shall be reveal'd
With all the Ang'lic Host;
His promises will be fulfill'd,
And none of them be lost.

6 He will reward his suff'ring saints
For all their toil and pain:
Where not a foe or least complaint,
Shall trouble them again.
