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

1 I have found what I wanted, what I sought for so long,
I am happy in Jesus every day;
He has given contentment, he has filled me with song;
I am happy in Jesus every day.

Refrain:
I am daily enraptured and my cup runneth o’er,
I am happy in Jesus every day;
He has crowned me with blessings that I knew not before,
I am happy in Jesus every day.

2 Since I first found a pardon for the sins of my soul,
I’ve been happy in Jesus every day;
For he took me and cleansed me and he then made me whole,
And I’m happy in Jesus every day. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what pleasures he gives me, oh, the joys I have known,
I am happy in Jesus every day;
Oh, what visions of rapture unto me he hath shown;
I am happy in Jesus every day. [Refrain]
