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.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCXXV
