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 friend and He came to seek me,
I was afar on the ocean wave,
Into the fold of His love He brought me,
Peace to my soul from that hour He gave.

Refrain
Glory, glory, Jesus is my Savior,
I will sing and praise him in the glad, new song;
Glory, glory, I will give Him glory,
When mine eyes behold Him, in the blood-washed throng.

2. O how my heart with its joy is bounding,
O what a Savior and Friend is He,
Full of compassion and rich in blessing,
O how He loves and He cares for me. [Refrain]

3. I have a friend that will ne’er forsake me,
I shall be kept by His mighty pow’r.
Safe in the arms of His love that folds me,
Moment by moment and hour by hour. [Refrain]

4. I have a hope that is sure and steadfast,
Firm as the rock where by faith I stand;
I have the pledge of a rest eternal
Waiting for me in the soul’s bright land. [Refrain]
