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.

Representative Text

1 I have found a Friend so kind and true,
I would tell His wond’rous love to you,
I am in His keeping all day thro’,
I would sing the praise of Jesus.

Sing with me, bless His holy name,
All the way He is just the same,
To Him honor bringing,
Let His praise be ringing,
Sing with me of Jesus, bless His name.

2 When I stood in need He heard my call,
Now He holds me safe tho’ shadows fall;
I would honor Him my all in all,
I would sing the praise of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I am toiling on at His command,
When He speaks to me I understand,
Peace I find beneath His shelt’ring hand,
I would sing the praise of Jesus. [Refrain]
