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 today and the sun shines bright,
The clouds have been rolled away;
For the Savior said, whosoever will
May come with Him to stay.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.

2. All my hopes have been raised, O His name be praised,
His glory has filled my soul;
I've been lifted up, and from sin set free,
His blood has made me whole.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.

3. O what wonderful love, O what grace divine,
That Jesus should die for me;
I was lost in sin, for the world I pined,
But now I am set free.

"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
Surely meaneth me, O surely meaneth me;
"Whosoever," surely meaneth me,
"Whosoever," meaneth me.
