Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Waves of Devotion

Representative Text

1 A glorious blessing bestowed upon me,
Salvation, the joy of my heart;
The theme of my song and forever shall be,
To me Thy rich graces impart.

Refrain:
The waves of devotion rebound in my soul,
And sparkle so bright in the sun;
I drink of that fountain, oh, glory, I’m whole!
My Eden on earth has begun.

2 Salvation, oh, glory! its rapture I feel—
A current of heavenly bliss;
My soul is delighted, I cannot conceal
The deep-seated joy I possess. [Refrain]

3 My pathway is bright as the cloudless noonday,
My peace like a river that flows;
Upon me such blessings are showered alway,
Which grace in profusion bestows. [Refrain]

4 More precious, more priceless, than rubies of earth
His fullness of infinite love;
Transported, communing with Jesus, what worth!
I’m feasting with Him from above. [Refrain]
