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 Christ is my portion forever,
He is my Saviour from sin;
He is my blessed salvation,
I have the witness within.

I have the witness within,
Jesus now saves me from sin;
In his heart I’ve a place,
I am saved by his grace,
And I have the witness within.

2 He is my fortress and tower,
He is my guide and my King;
He is my Shepherd, my Keeper
Joyfully now I can sing. [Refrain]

3 Praise to the One who redeems me,
Praise to my crucified Lord;
Now I am saved, hallelujah!
Praise for the wonderful word. [Refrain]
