Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

577. None Lacks a Friend Who Hath Thy Love

1 None lacks a friend who hath thy love,
and may converse and walk with thee,
and with the saints, here and above,
with whom forever I must be.

2 In the communion of God's saints
is wisdom, safety, and delight;
and when my heart declines and faints,
it's lifted by their warmth and light.

3 As for my friends, they are not lost;
the sev'ral vessels of thy fleet,
though parted now, by tempests toss'd,
shall safely in the haven meet.

4 Still we are centered all in thee,
members, though distant, of one Head;
in the same family we be,
by the same faith and Spirit led.

5 Before thy throne we daily meet
as joint petitioners to thee;
in spirit we each other greet,
and shall again each other see.

6 The heavenly hosts, world without end,
shall be my company above;
and thou, my best and surest friend,
who shall divide me from thy love?
