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 God has promised to love us, He sent His only Son;
Jesus died to forgive us, no matter what we’ve done.
He wants to live inside us, and clean up ev’ry part,
When we ask Him to save us, and live within our heart!

Refrain:
Oh, it’s a wonderful life when we walk with the Lord!
It’s a wonderful life when we live by His Word!
It’s a wonderful life praising God above!
For when we walk with Jesus, it’s a wonderful life!

2 There are so many people who need to know God’s love;
Empty, lonely, and fearful, they know not God above.
What joy is ours to befriend them, and lead them to the Lord,
And help them grow in Jesus, and understand God’s Word! [Refrain]

3 Sometimes we are so happy, and sometimes we get sad;
Sometimes life seems so easy, and sometimes things go bad.
Yet one thing never changes when we know Christ as Lord;
For He’s our Friend and Saviour, Who’s faithful to His Word! [Refrain]

4 Come whatever may come then, we know God’s always there;
Day by day He is with us; He’s promised us His care.
Abundant life He has given, and hope and peace and rest;
And when we get to Heaven, eternal life, His best!

Oh, it’s a wonderful life when we walk with the Lord!
It’s a wonderful life when we live by His Word!
It’s a wonderful life praising God above!
For when we walk with Jesus, it’s a wonderful,
It’s a wonderful, it’s a wonderful life!
