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 Let the holy name of Jesus
Dwell forever in thy heart;
It will cleanse, refresh, and cheer you,
Shield from Satan's fatal dart.
O the joy, the precious fountain,
Which his sacred name supplies;
It is balm for wounded spirits,
It is life that never dies.

2 Souls all weary, worn, and troubled,
Bowed with sorrow, pain, and grief;
Weak and trembling—in this fountain
Surely find a sweet relief.
With thy woes and earthly labors,
Weary with thy load of care;
Come, O come unto the Savior,
In him endless pleasures are.
