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.

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]
