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

Representative Text

1 I am resting in the Lord,
Trusting on His gracious word;
Lost in wonder while I see
His amazing love to me.

I am resting in the Lord,
Trusting in His gracious word;
Glory now, by faith I see,
This is more than life to me.

2 Thro’ the Spirit’s pow’r Divine,
Sweetest comfort now is mine;
He has made my anchor sure,
On the Rock I stand secure. [Refrain]

3 In my hour of daily pray’r,
God is precious, God is there;
Nearer to His throne I come,
Nearer to my heav’nly home. [Refrain]

4 By affliction sorely tried,
Grace my heart has purified;
Grace has made me what I am,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]
