During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

God Is

Representative Text

God is the joy and the strength of my life,
God moves all pain, misery, and strife,
God promised to keep me, never to leave me,
God's never, ever come short of his word.
I've got to fast and pray, stay in the narrow way.
I'll keep my life clean everyday.
I want to go with him when he comes back,
I've come too far and I'll never turn back.
God is, God is, God is, God is,
God is my all and all.

God is the joy and the strength of my life,
God moves all pain, misery, and strife,
God promised to keep me, never to leave me,
God's never, ever come short of his word.
I've got to fast and pray, stay in the narrow way.
I'll keep my life clean everyday.
I want to go with him when he comes back,
I've come too far and I'll never turn back.
God is, God is, God is, God is,
God is my all and all.
