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 Jesus all my grief is sharing,
He my mansion is preparing,
When I’m trembling and despairing,
He will ever hear my call;
When the storms are round me sweeping,
Tho’ in helplessness I’m sleeping,
I am safe in His own keeping,
This to me is best of all:
Best of all, best of all,
I am safe in His own keeping,
This to me is best of all.

2 Jesus loves and watches o’er me,
When astray He will restore me;
Angel guards He sends before me,
Lest in fatal snares I fall;
With His friends He hath enrolled me,
By His might He will uphold me,
In His arms He will enfold me,
This to me is best of all:
Best of all, best of all,
In His arms He will enfold me,
This to me is best of all.

3 Jesus loves, and He will guide me,
All I need He will provide me,
In His bosom He will hide me,
When the woes of life appall;
He will hear my feeblest sighing,
Needful grace to me supplying,
He’ll be with me when I’m dying,
This to me is best of all:
Best of all, best of all,
He’ll be with me when I’m dying,
This to me is best of all.
