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’m happy in the service of the King,
My heart and voice unite His praise to sing,
My soul doth bless His name,
He is every day the same,
Loud let the hallelujah chorus ring!

I believe “the old, old story,”
Of God’s love so strong and pure,
And I’m going on to glory,
For His promises are sure.

2 But there’s a work on earth for me to do,
I must to all my duties here be true,
And though sometimes I’m tried,
And beset on every side,
I know the mighty Christ will bring me through. [Refrain]

3 So, looking up toward the shining light,
Faith sees the saints above, arrayed in white,
I’m strengthened by His grace,
I shall see Him face to face,
Who sweetly saves and keeps me day and night. [Refrain]

4 Then, let us give our hearts to Him today,
And labor in His vineyard while we may,
Soon will this life be o’er,
Soon we’ll reach the golden shore,
Where with our God forever we will stay. [Refrain]
