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,

Full Text

1 I am living in peace and contentment of soul,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
All my trials and burdens on Him now I roll,
Since I gave up the world for Him.

Refrain:
Sweet peace fills my soul since He took control,
And I gave up the world for Jesus,
He has cleans’d me from sin, and I’m on my way home,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus.

2 I am feeding on manna He daily provides,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And by still flowing waters my footsteps He guides,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]

3 O I love to walk with Him, as friend walks with friend,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And the hours are so blissful that with Him I spend,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]

4 I’ve a foretaste of joy that in heaven they know,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And it brightens my pathway as homeward I go,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]
