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’s kingdom is within the heart,
’Tis there He reigns as king;
He speaks to us and bids us learn
His blessèd songs to sing.

O the songs, the songs of the kingdom,
That help us bid evil depart;
The glad songs of God’s blessèd kingdom,
The kingdom of God in the heart.

2. God’s kingdom is within the heart,
Sweet melodies are there;
We hear His tender loving tones,
It sanctifies our care. [Refrain]

3. God’s kingdom is within the heart,
Dear Savior, reign in love,
Until to Heaven we are called
To sing the songs above. [Refrain]
