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.

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]
