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.

Representative Text

1 Carols of gladness thrill my soul today,
Visions of glory thro’ the shadows I see—
Wonderful visions all along the way,
For my Savior is walking along with me.

Jesus is with me in the homeward way,
Visions of glory in His presence I see;
Leading me onward to the realms of day,
Jesus is walking along with me.

2 Precious assurance all the while is mine,
Nothing shall harm me if to Him I am true;
Cheering my spirit with His love divine,
My Redeemer is able to take me thro’. [Refrain]

3 Praises eternal shall for Him ascend,
When I behold Him in His palace above;
Always with rapture I shall praise my Friend,
For the glorious gift of His boundless love. [Refrain]
