Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Ah! what is happiness complete?
Ah! tell me, if you know;
I’d seek that wonderful retreat
And to its altar go.

Oh, this is happiness complete:
To fall at Jesus’ feet,
And at the blood-stained mercy seat
The loving Christ to meet.

2 Yes, this is happiness complete
In Jesus Christ to rest;
He is the wonderful retreat
Where you are saved and blest. [Refrain]

3 Here is the altar where you may
In sweet contentment bow;
Where every sorrow flies away,
Come, and accept it now. [Refrain]

4 I hear the invitation sweet;
Ah! Christ, I come to Thee,
Where happiness is mine complete
To all eternity. [Refrain]
