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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Lord, Thou art my life,
My rest in labor, shield in strife;
Thy love begets my love to Thee;
Thy fullness that which filleth me.

2 Long, long I struggled e’er I knew
My struggling vain, my life untrue;
I sought by effort of my own
The gift that comes from Christ alone.

3 I pray’d and wrestled in my pray’r,
I wrought, but self was ever there;
Joy never came, nor rest, nor peace,
Nor faith, nor hope, nor love’s increase.

4 My effort vain, my weakness lean’d,
On Christ alone; to Him I turn’d,
Content to let His fullness be
God’s boundless gift of grace to me.
