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.

Representative Text

1 I am happy in the Lord, hallelujah!
Of his goodness I am telling all the day;
I am trusting in his word, hallelujah!
And my joy the world can never take away.

I am happy in the Lord, sweetly resting on his word,
Looking upward to his temple in the sky;
Where his servants day and night swell their anthems of delight,
And my dwelling will be ready by and by.

2 He is leading me along, hallelujah!
I am walking in his shadow all the while;
Oh, he fills my heart with song, hallelujah!
And my faith can see his tender, loving smile. [Refrain]

3 I will praise him o’er and o’er, hallelujah!
I will praise him for the mercy shown to me
Till I reach the other shore, hallelujah!
And my bark shall drop its anchor o’er the sea. [Refrain]

4 Then with all the saints above, hallelujah!
When I stand arrayed in righteousness complete;
I will shout redeeming love, hallelujah!
While I cast my crown of glory at his feet. [Refrain]
