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

700. I Received the Living God

Refrain:
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

1 Jesus said: I am the bread
kneaded long to give you life;
you who will partake of me
need not ever fear to die. (Refrain)

2 Jesus said: I am the way,
and my Father longs for you;
so I come to bring you home
to be one with us anew. (Refrain)

3 Jesus said: I am the truth;
if you follow close to me,
you will know me in your heart,
and my word shall make you free. (Refrain)

4 Jesus said: I am the life
far from whom no thing can grow,
but receive this living bread,
and my Spirit you shall know. (Refrain)
