Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 song within my heart,
A song of joy divine;
It came when first I learned to know,
That Jesus Christ was mine.
How bright this dismal world appeared,
I oft recall the time,
E’en now my heart is filled with joy,
For Jesus Christ is mine.

2 I have a song within my heart,
A song I love to sing,
It is a song of glorious trust,
A hope on which I cling,
The Saviour spake the words of love,
Just now I hear them ring,
Which made me free from ev’ry sin,
And Jesus for my King.

3 I have a song within my heart,
I’ll sing from morn till night,
A happy, blessed song of trust,
From Jesus I receive.
He fills me with a pow’r divine,
He bids me e’er believe,
All sinners with a weight of woe,
He, only, can relieve.
