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 In my heart there’s always room for Jesus,
Tho’ so many, many friends have I;
But no matter what befall,
He’s the truest friend of all,
He will ev’ry needed want supply.

Yes, there’s always room for Jesus in my heart,
I know He will keep me, He will bless me, as my way I go;
He’s the friend of all the dearest who will joy impart,
There is always room for Jesus in my trusting heart.

2 In my tho’ts there’s always room for Jesus,
Tho’ I’ve many, many tho’ts each day;
But His wondrous love so free
Is the sweetest tho’t to me,
And it cheers me as I go my way. [Refrain]

3 In my life there’s always room for Jesus,
Tho’ I’ve duties I must daily do;
There is room enough to spare,
For my Lord to have a share,
He’s the truest friend I ever knew. [Refrain]
