Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Happy, Savior, should I be

Full 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]
