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,

64. On the Mountain with Jesus

1 Once I came, a poor, penitent sinner,
But the Saviour of men heard my pray’r;
Then I went on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory did shine ’round me there.

Refrain:
Let the winds and the waves sweep around me,
I have peace which the world cannot share;
For I’ve been on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory hath shone ’round me there.

2 Once I bowed in the valley of sorrow,
But I heard a voice, “do not despair;”
Then I went on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory did shine ’round me there. [Refrain]

3 Soon I’ll walk with my Lord down the valley,
And we’ll enter those portals so fair;
Then I’ll live on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory will shine ’round me there. [Refrain]
