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.

1 If you are discouraged
In darkness or in doubt,
If you are down-hearted,
The Lord can bring you out,
Don’t give o’er the battle
The vict’ry you can win,
Open your heart to heaven
And the glory will come in.

Refrain:
Open your heart to heaven and the glory will come in,
Open your heart to heaven and the glory will come in;
Tell Jesus all your trials, He’ll save you from your sin,
Open your heart to heaven and the glory will come in.

2 Do you long for comfort
This world has never brought?
Do you carry burdens,
Your many sins have wrought?
Take it all to Jesus;
Your Friend He’s always been,
Open your heart to heaven
And the glory will come in. [Refrain]

3 When you’re sorely tempted,
Because of some defeat,
When you have forebodings,
Of trials you’re to meet,
Trust and do not worry,
Thy faith will surely win,
Open your heart to heaven
And the glory will come in. [Refrain]

4 When life’s joys and sorrows,
It’s hopes and fears are o’er,
When with those we’ve labored,
We reach the golden shore,
We’ll rejoice forever,
For vict’ry over sin,
Open your heart to heaven
And the glory will come in. [Refrain]
