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,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I am walking and talking with Jesus my King,
And am finding delight in the praises I sing,
For so closely and trustingly daily I cling;
He is keeping my soul in His love.

Refrain:
He is keeping my soul in His love.
And I know I shall meet Him above;
He will care for His own till the shadows are gone,
He is keeping my soul in His love.

2 I am happy with Jesus and care not to stray
After the pleasures of sin, from the heav’nly way;
For He gives to me pleasures and gladness each day,
He is keeping my soul in His love. [Refrain]

3 I have found my Redeemer of all friends the best,
He has pardoned my sin all my life He has blest,
And I know we shall meet in that haven of rest,
He is keeping my soul in His love. [Refrain]
