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 left it all with Jesus
Long ago;
All my sins I brought him,
And my woe.
When by faith I saw him
On the tree,
Heard his small, still whisper,
'’Tis for thee,'
From my heart the burden
Rolled away—
Happy day!
From my heart the burden
Rolled away—
Happy day!

2 I leave it all with Jesus,
For he knows
How to steal the bitter
From life's woes;
How to gild the tear-drop
With his smile,
Make the desert garden
Bloom awhile:
When my weakness leaneth
On his might,
All seems light.
When my weakness leaneth
On his might,
All seems light.

3 I leave it all with Jesus
Day by day;
Faith can firmly trust him
Come what may,
Hope has dropped her anchor,
Found her rest
In the calm, sure haven
Of his breast:
Love esteems it heaven
To abide
At his side.
Love esteems it heaven
To abide
At his side.

4 Oh, leave it all with Jesus,
Drooping soul!
Tell not half thy story,
But the whole.
Worlds on worlds are hanging
On his hand,
Life and death are waiting
His command;
Yet his tender bosom
Makes thee room—
Oh, come home!
