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

881. Christ Is Mine

1 Christ is mine, my heart’s dear treasure,
Greater than all earthly store,
Filled with His untold abundance,
Yearns not now my heart for more.

Refrain:
Christ is mine, and every longing
Satisfies abundantly;
He’s my joy, my hope, my glory,
He is all, yes, all to me.

2 Christ is mine, my hope of glory,
Anchor of my trusting soul,
Holding fast while in the tempest,
Stormy waves around me roll. [Refrain]

3 Christ, the source of all my pleasure,
Now in Him my soul doth find
Joy unspeakable, exceeding
Earthly pleasures all combined. [Refrain]

4 Christ is mine, my loving Savior,
For He gave His life for me;
Ransomed thus from sinful bondage
I am His eternally. [Refrain]
