Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.
