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

1 How glad I am there is room for me
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that his grace is free!
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus!

Refrain:
There is joy in my heart, great joy today;
I am pressing t’ward the kingdom in the bright, shining way;
There is joy in my heart, great joy today,
For I soon shall be at home with Jesus.

2 How glad I am there is room for all
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that he heard my call;
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]

3 How glad I am for the love I share
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that he brought me there;
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]

4 How glad I am that I found the way
To the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
That I now can feel, and I now can say,
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]
