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 treasures, wondrous treasures,
That are precious to my soul,
And they grow still dearer, dearer,
As the glad years onward roll.

Gifts are they from God my Father,
Straight from his dear hands they came,
Gifts that never more shall perish,
Mine forever, praise his name.

2 Peace that passeth understanding,
Hope in him that cannot die,
Fullness of his love eternal
Foretaste of thy joy on high. [Refrain]

3 Over there a home so blessed,
Where there shall be no more night,
Death and sin may never enter,
All is love and peace and light. [Refrain]

4 You may have these blessed treasures,
Unto you he will bestow
And each trusting soul who seeks them,
Shall their blessed sweetness know. [Refrain]
