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 I’ve entered the land dearly bought by His blood,
Passed over Jordan, surrendered to God;
I’ve found His sufficiency here in this land,
Glory to Jesus forever!

Far, far on the other side,
I’m living across the river,
Burned are the bridges ’twixt me and the world,
Glory to Jesus forever!

2 The giants are conquered the spies said were here,
Jesus is victor, I need have no fear;
Summer in winter and joy all the year,
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]

3 The manna is gone and the corn is my food,
Dead to the world and I’m living in God;
I’ve ceased saying can’t since I found that He could—
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]
