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

In joyful high and holy lays

In joyful high and holy lays

Author: E. S. Lorenz
Tune: WONDERFUL LOVE OF JESUS
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 In joyful high and holy lays
My soul her grateful voice would raise;
But who can sing the worthy praise
Of the wonderful love of Jesus?

Refrain:
Wonderful love! wonderful love!
Wonderful love of Jesus!
Wonderful love! wonderful love!
Wonderful love of Jesus!

2 A joy by day, a peace by night,
In storms a calm, in darkness light,
In pain a balm, in weakness might,
Is the wonderful love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 My hope for pardon when I call,
My trust for lifting when I fall;
In life, in death, my all in all,
Is the wonderful love of Jesus. [Refrain]
