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 Give me no earthly treasures,
Glory, or pomp, or pride;
Only the simple pleasures
Found at the Saviour’s side.

Jesus, only Jesus,
He is enough for me;
Jesus, only Jesus,
Until eternity.

2 There is relief from sorrow,
Never a wish denied,
Only today or morrow,
Joy at my Master’s side. [Refrain]

3 Wrecked on the rocks of sadness,
Out on the stormy tide;
Come to the port of gladness,
Close by the Saviour’s side. [Refrain]
