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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

155. My Grace is Sufficient for Thee

1 The Seer came back from paradise
To earth with its sorrow and pain;
There floated to him from refulgent skies
The words of this glad refrain:

“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
For my strength is made perfect in weakness;
“My grace is sufficient for thee.”

2 Alone in the hush of the silent night,
Alone with my prayer and pain,
Came singing to me, with the morning light,
The peace of this sweet refrain: [Refrain]

3 Like thorns in the crown that the Saviour wore,
Come our “thorns in the flesh” again;
He whispers to each that message of yore,
The joy of this same refrain: [Refrain]
