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’m happy in Jesus, rejoicing today;
And Jesus my Saviour with me has his way;
The Comforter comes in my glad heart to stay;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free!

Refrain:
I’m free, free! gloriously free!
No longer by sin I am bound;
The precious blood cleanseth and satisfies me,
This freedom in Jesus I’ve found.

2 This freedom in Jesus means blessed release,
From sin and from sinning forever to cease;
And freedom from self brings such infinite peace;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

3 This freedom in Jesus is glorious rest,
A peaceful reclining on his loving breast;
And when I just trust him my soul is so blest;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

4 His love is so tender, his pow’r so divine,
My all to his keeping I gladly resign;
A vessel of clay for my Lord to design;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

5 No longer I’m fettered the Lord hath control,
The clear light of heaven breaks in on my soul;
I’ll sing while the years of eternity roll,
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]
