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 satisfies my soul, for I am sav’d
From the sin that caus’d unrest;
He has broken all the chains that once enslav’d,
Bringing heaven to my breast.
Oh! He satisfies, satisfies my soul,
For He is my constant friend;
And He promises the sunshine of His smile
In the life that has no end.
2 Jesus satisfies my soul when sorrows press
Like a thorn-crown on my brown;
There are pledges in His word that soothe distress,
And His arm sustains me now. [Refrain]
3 Jesus satisfies my soul when trials keen
Aim their weapons at my heart;
I am shielded by a mighty hand unseen,
That can turn each fiery dart. [Refrain]
4 Jesus satisfies my soul while changing years
Steal away life’s cherish’d bloom;
Tho’ the valley of the shadow swiftly nears,
There’s no terror in its gloom. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day No. 3 #76
