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 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]
