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.

Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 In land or store I may be poor;
My place unknown, my name obscure;
Of this I have the witness sure;
O bless the Lord, I’ve Jesus!

What tho’ the world its gifts deny,
I’ve riches more than gold can buy—
The key to treasures in the sky!
O bless the Lord, I’ve Jesus!

2 On life’s rough sea how frail my bark!
But in the storm and densest dark
I have a safe and trusted Ark;
O bless the Lord, ‘tis Jesus! [Refrain]

3 When shadows deep around me fall,
And gloom and fear my soul enthrall,
There is an arm beneath them all;
O bless the Lord, ‘tis Jesus! [Refrain]

4 Soon will this fleeting life be o’er;
O then, upon the other shore
I’ll be with him forevermore,
Forevermore with Jesus. [Refrain]
