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.

Jesus Is Good to Me

Full Text

1 Jesus has been so good to me,
No other friend so kind could be;
Safely keeps me every day
Free from sin and in the way;
Ne’er can I such love repay,
He’s so good to me.

Refrain:
Jesus is good to me,
Jesus is good to me;
Safely keeps me from the wrong,
In the conflict makes me strong,
Blesses all my journey long,
He’s so good to me.

2 Jesus has been so good to me,
From this world He set me free;
Grace and glory did impart,
Satisfied my longing heart:
From His love I’ll never part,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]

3 Jesus has been so good to me,
And His face I soon shall see;
Though I once afar did rove,
Lost, unworthy of His love,
He prepared a home above,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]

4 Jesus has been so good to me,
None so fair, so dear as He:
Hallelujah! He is mine,
Keeping me by grace divine,
And His glories in me shine,
He’s so good to me. [Refrain]
