Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I’ll gladly suffer for Jesus,
While doing His blessed will,
I’ll have His presence to cheer me,
To say “In the fire be still.”

So I’m content along the way,
If He will be my guide and stay,
And I will trust form day to day,
My dear almighty Saviour;
Whate’er He wills I’ll not complain.
Come weal, come woe He sill sustain,
So I’ll rejoice with heart and voice,
I’ll gladly suffer for Jesus.

2 I’ll gladly suffer for Jesus,
Who suffered so much for me;
And to my soul He is precious,
For doubting and fear shall flee. [Refrain]

3 I’ll gladly suffer for Jesus,
Be true in the darkest night;
He’ll help me bear ev’ry burden;
And darkness will change to light. [Refrain]
