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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 All praise to His name—
All honor and fame,
Who suffered that I might be whole;
All worthy is He,
Exalted to be,
And this is the song of my soul.

The song of my soul,
The song of my soul,
All worthy is He
Exalted to be,
And this is the song of my soul.

2 He sought me afar,
On perilous bar,
Where wildly the billows did roll
He saved me from woe,
To Him all I owe,
And this is the song of my soul. [Refrain]

3 I’m journeying here,
From year unto year,
And heaven above is my goal;
My Lord intercedes,
Upholds me and leads,
And this is the song of my soul. [Refrain]
