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

1. I have a dear Savior who loves me, I know,
And whose will I delight to do;
He’s present to cheer me wherever I go—
Was there ever a friend so true?

Refrain
Was there ever a friend so true?
Was there ever a friend so true?
I often have proved Him,
I ever will love Him—
Was there ever a friend so true?

2. This wonderful friend is a helper indeed;
He has promised to lead me through,
And closer He comes than a brother in need—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]

3. He soothes me in sorrow with songs in the night,
And inspires me with hope anew;
He fills me with courage my battles to fight—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]

4. His love is a fountain of blessing so pure,
Ever flowing for me, for you;
His power is unfailing, His promise is sure—
Was there ever a friend so true? [Refrain]
