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 was poorer than all,
I was hungry and cold,
I was far, far away
from the dear Shepherd’s fold;
But Jesus now gives me
of His riches untold,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain
I was poorer than all;
now I’ve riches to spare,
And a home He is building
for me so bright and fair;
And some day I am going
to my home over there,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

2. I was poorer than all,
I was friendless, alone,
I was still in my sins,
and my heart was a stone;
But Jesus smiled on me
and said, Thou art My own,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]

3. I was poorer than all,
I was ready to die,
But the Savior came down
from His throne in the sky;
On Calv’ry He ransomed
such a sinner as I,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]

4. I was poorer than all
till the Lord said to me,
Go in peace, sin no more;
now I’m happy and free,
And ever I’ll praise Him,
and His child I will be.
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]
