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 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 The sentence repealed,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.Source: Songs of the Kingdom: prepared for the use of young people's societies and adapter for prayer meetings, Sunday schools and the home #94
