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

Full Text

1. I have a friend whose life is sweet to me,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
His blood doth keep me clean and make me free,
I’m happy in Jesus today.

Refrain
I’m happy in Jesus today,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
For Jesus goes with me all the way,
I’m happy in Jesus today.

2. He bore my burdens all upon the tree,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
His precious life He gave to pardon me,
I’m happy in Jesus today. [Refrain]

3. His grace to me grows sweeter every day,
I’m happy in Jesus today;
It helps to keep me from the evil way,
I’m happy in Jesus today. [Refrain]
