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

1 Are you looking for a friend,
One who will your life defend,
A friend indeed, whose love is deep and true;
There is one close by your side,
And with you He would confide
He is waiting to relieve and comfort you.

This friend is Jesus,
He died on the cross to save you from sin;
This friend who will keep to the end,
This wonderful friend is Jesus.

2 Are you looking for a friend,
One on whom you can depend,
A friend who standeth true when others fail;
You will find the Lord, indeed,
Is a friend in every need,
And He bids you have the faith on Him to call. [Refrain]

3 He’s the dearest in the world,
For when human lips are curled,
He’s precious, oh, so precious, day by day,
And He’s waiting now for you,
For your heart and service, too;
Will you take Him as your friend while now you may? [Refrain]
