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 I’ve been to the fountain of blessing,
And drank of its waters so free;
Its murmurs were sweeter than music,
So calm and so restful to me:

I’ve been to the fountain of blessing;
My spirit, o’erburdened with care,
Was lost in the vision of rapture,
For Jesus, my Saviour, was there.

2 He spoke, and with rev’rence I listened,
I knew the glad sound of His voice,
The bow of His promise was o’er me,
He bade me look up and rejoice. [Chorus]

3 I’ve been to the fountain of blessing,
And soon to its source I shall go,
To dwell in His presence for ever,
Where only His love I shall know. [Chorus]
