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

True Happiness

How happy is the Christian's state

Author: Hudson
Tune: SALZBURG (Haydn)
Published in 60 hymnals

Full Text

1 How happy is the Christian's State!
His Sins are all forgiven;
A cheering Ray confirms the Grace,
And lifts his Hopes to Heav'n.

2 Tho' in the rugged Path of Life,
He heaves the pensive Sigh;
Yet trusting in his God he finds
Deliv'ring Grace is nigh.

3 If, to prevent his wand'ring Steps,
He feels the chast'ning Rod;
The gentle Stroke shall bring him back
To his forgiving God.

4 And when the welcome Message comes
To call his Soul away;
His Soul, in Raptures shall ascend
To everlasting Day.
