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.
Harry Plantinga

I'm in the path of peace

Representative Text

1 I'm in the path of peace where pleasures never cease,
And where my soul delights to be;
All worldly loss is gain,—with Jesus I remain,
For saving grace is keeping me.

His grace is keeping me,
His grace is keeping me;
All glory to His name,
His grace is keeping me.

2 I lean upon His arm, He shields from every harm;
Sweet songs I sing because I'm free!
His glory lights the way to everlasting day,
Praise God, His grace is keeping me. [Refrain]

3 I know that I shall sing hosanna to my King
When I His blessed face shall see;
I'll dwell forevermore on that eternal shore
With Him whose grace is keeping me. [Refrain]
