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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I have a friend, my precious Saviour,
And O I love him so,
He makes my life so full of sunshine
I’ve heaven here below.

And that’s what he’s doing ev’ry day
Something to brighten all the way,
And this I know
Where’er I go
He’s in my heart to stay.

2 He changes ev’ry night of trial
Into the “perfect day,”
He giveth joy in place of sadness
And sunshine all the way. [Refrain]

3 And now in heav’n he is preparing
A mansion bright and fair
And when this earthly life is ended
I’ll meet him over there. [Refrain]
