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.

Representative Text

1 I have a Friend, a loving Friend,
Who gave His life for me;
I lean upon His sacred word,
And there my trust shall be.
In joy of grief, in bliss or pain,
Whate’er my steps befall;
How sweet to know my life is hid
With Christ, my All in All.

2 I have a Friend, a constant Friend,
Whose name I breathe in prayers;
He bids me come when ere I will,
And cast on Him my care.
And though I pass thro’ waters deep,
His mercy hears my call;
How sweet to know my heart is staid
On Christ, my All in All.

3 I have a Friend, a precious Friend,
Who calms my every fear;
What can I wish or ask beside,
When He, my Lord, is near.
And though the dearest hopes of earth,
Like withered leaves may fall;
How sweet to know there’s perfect rest
In Christ, my All in All.

4 I have a Friend, a changeless Friend,
Who loves me not alone;
I hear His voice and feel His pow’r,
While waiting at His throne;
His watchful eye is o’er me still,
Like dew His blessings fall;
My heart, my soul, my life, I give,
To Christ, my All in All.
