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.

Jesus, my hope and confidence

Jesus, my hope and confidence

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus, my hope and confidence;
My Saviour, life and peace;
I know that he is my defence,
His love will never cease.

2 The long and tedious night of death,
Can't cause me to despair;
My hope my trust and living faith,
Removes all doubts and fear.

3 Jesus, my Lord, for ever lives,
And I shall live likewise;
Yes, I shall be where Jesus is,
And see him with mine eyes.

4 Why should I doubt or feel afraid,
Since Jesus is my friend;
Like members with a living hear,
With him I shall ascend

5 Like him I shall be glorified,
And worship at his throne;
And live for him who for me died,
And wholly be his own.

6 Tho' I must lay this body down,
To mingle with the clay,
Till wak'ned by the trumpet sound,
In that great solemn day.

7 then I shall be restor'd again,
And like the angels shine;
No more subject to death or pain,
Immortal and divine.
