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.

Representative Text

1 Happy am I ev’ry hour of the day,
Singing of mercy divine;
I’m following ever the heavenly way,
O what a Saviour is mine!

O what a Saviour is mine!
O what a Saviour divine!
Now onward I’m going, with praise overflowing,
O what a Saviour is mine!

2 Light s my burden and glad is my soul,
Bright is the path that I trace,
As onward I go t’ward the heavenly goal,
Praising His marvelous grace. [Refrain]

3 Thou who art weary and sin-sick and sad,
Come to my Saviour today,
And thou shalt be sinless, triumphant and glad,
Singing His praises alway. [Refrain]
