Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Let the path be bright, with sunny skies,
Let joy fade not away,
Let the home be dear with tender ties,
And yet, how sweet to say,

Refrain:
‘Tis only the Lord, ‘tis only the Lord
Can satisfy the soul;
‘Tis only the Lord, ‘tis only the Lord
Can satisfy the soul.

2 Let the earth bestow its wealth and pride,
Let fame its laurels bring,
Let the dearest wish be gratified,
And yet, how sweet to say, [Refrain]

3 Let the sweetest hopes be given here,
Let all be one bright day,
Let the heart be glad and full of cheer,
And yet, how sweet to say, [Refrain]
