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 Life in His favor! Forgiven all sin,
Sunshine around me, and comfort within;
Sov’reign and Saviour, Redeemer and Friend,
Thee will I follow and serve to the end.

2 Life in His favor! The sentence repealed,
Pardoned the guilty, the sin-sick one healed;
Prodigal welcomed, and sonship restored,
Happy the soul in the smile of its Lord.

3 Life in His favor! All else is but vain.
Sin’s thorny pathways are sorrow and pain;
Riches and pleasure a fugitive gleam,
Honor and splendor a vanishing dream.

4 Where can be sunshine if night shroud the skies?
Darkness broods o’er me until Thou arise;
Radiance of mercy, effulgence divine,
Sun of salvation, oh, break forth and shine.
