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.
Harry Plantinga

True Happiness

How happy is the Christian's state

Author: Hudson
Tune: SALZBURG (Haydn)
Published in 61 hymnals

Representative 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.
