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

Representative Text

1 Is it well with your soul today, brother,
Is it well with you, today?
Are your sins all forgiven, of God in heav'n,
Is it well with your soul today?

Chorus:
There's a fountain that's set for you, brother,
A fountain of blood for you,
You may wash and be clean from every stain,
Is it well with your soul today?

2 Have you pray'd to the Lord, today, brother,
The Lord, the Lord, today?
Have you lifted your eyes toward yonder skies,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

3 Have you conquer'd a foe today, brother,
A foe, a foe, today?
Have you suffered one loss for Jesus, cross,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

4 Can you look up with faith today, brother,
With faith, with faith, today?
Is the horizon clear 'twixt heaven and here,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

5 Do you cherish a hope today, brother,
A hope, a hope, today?
That the angels will come, and bear you home,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]
