We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 My Father is with me to guide and to bless;
There’s joy in my heart,
There’s joy in my heart;
For safely He’ll lead thro’ this world’s wilderness,
And from me He will never depart.

Refrain:
There’s joy in my heart today;
When Jesus is near no danger I fear;
His presence will be my stay;
There’s joy in my heart today.

2 Thro’ storm and thro’ tempest whatever betide,
There’s joy in my heart,
There’s joy in my heart;
For Jesus my Savior walks close by my side,
And His presence sweet peace will impart. [Refrain]

3 He’s promised to help me when earth’s helpers fail,
There’s joy in my heart,
There’s joy in my heart;
For well do I know that His love will prevail,
Brining comfort and peace to my heart. [Refrain]
