Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 My heart is fixed O God on Thee,
No more my feet shall go astray;
I caught a glimpse of Calvary,
And now I walk with Christ today.

My heart is fixed O! God on Thee,
My eyes are now on things above,
From worldly yokes,
Praise God I’m free,
I’m running o’er with joy and love.

2 One time I wandered far away,
I did not heed the Shepherd’s voice;
My heart on God is fixed today,
For He is my eternal choice. [Refrain]

3 My heart is fixed my face is set,
Upon the prize that lies before;
All other claims I will reject,
My heart is fixed forevermore. [Refrain]

4 No longer tossed upon the waves,
Of sin and doubt but now I sail;
Within the life boat, Jesus saves,
No storms against me shall prevail. [Refrain]
