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

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]
