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.

Happy, Savior, should I be

Representative Text

1 Happy, Savior, should we be
If we could but trust in thee;
Trust thy wisdom e’er to guide,
Trust thy goodness to provide.

Refrain:
Happy, yes, most happy we,
If we could but trust in thee,
Trust thy mighty love and power
Every day and every hour.

2 Trust in joy and trust in grief,
Trust thy promise for relief;
Trust thy blood to cleanse each soul,
Trust thy grace to make it whole. [Refrain]

3 Trust in sickness, trust in health;
Trust in poverty and wealth;
Trust thee as the only light,
In the darkest hour of night. [Refrain]
