During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

I have found a friend divine

Representative Text

1 I have found a friend divine,
Wont you love him too?
I am his and he is mine,
Wont you love him too?

Wont you love my Jesus,
My precious, precious Jesus?
Wont you love my Jesus?
He is waiting now for you.

2 Oh, how dear his name to me,
Wont you love him too?
None can save your soul but he,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]

3 Heavy-laden, care-oppressed,
Wont you love him too?
How he longs to give you rest,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]

4 Cast your burden at his feet,
Wont you love him too?
There is pardon pure and sweet,
Wont you love him too? [Refrain]
