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.

Representative Text

1 Bright is the daystar shining for me,
Happy in the love of Jesus;
Now from my bondage grace makes me free,
Happy in the love of Jesus.

Refrain:
Praise from my full heart loudly shall ring,
Born of the Spirit, child of a King;
Heir to His glory, now ill I sing,—
Happy in the love of Jesus.

2 He has redeem’d me, I am His own,
Happy in the love of Jesus;
Drawn by His mercy near to His throne,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 How I am honor’d, how I am blest,
Happy in the love of Jesus;
Under His banner sweetly I rest,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Firm is my anchor, steadfast and sure;
Happy in the love of Jesus;
All things with patience I can endure,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]
