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 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]
