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

Full Text

1 I love my Saviour, his heart is good,
He has loved me o’er and o’er;
He sought me wand’ring, I’m saved by his blood,
And I love him more and more.

Refrain:
Jesus is good to me,
Jesus is good to me;
So good! so good!
Jesus is good to my soul.

2 He calls, I rise, and he maketh me whole,—
How fond his tender embrace!
He cleanseth and keeps me and blesses my soul—
My day the smile of his face. [Refrain]

3 I want to love him with all my heart,
Tho’ all its powers are small;
I will not keep from him any part,
For he is worthy of all. [Refrain]

4 He’s good to me in my sorrow’s night,
He’s good in the tempest’s roll;
He bringeth from darkness into light,—
With joy he filleth my soul. [Refrain]
