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.

Representative Text

1 My life is not what it used to be,
My sorrow and sins are gone,
I sing and I shout hallelujah,
I’m on my happy journey home.

The way is very narrow, but I’ll follow,
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
The way is very narrow, but I’ll follow,
I will follow the footsteps of my Lord.

2 Once life was all disappointment,
Friends trusted all proved untrue;
In Jesus I found help and comfort,
He proved a Friend and Brother, too. [Refrain]

3 I mourn no longer in sorrow,
The clouds have all passed away;
I look up to heaven rejoicing,
There’s glory, glory ev’ry day. [Refrain]

4 I’ve peace past all understanding,
The Comforter dwell within;
I’ve songs full of joy never-ending,
For Jesus saves me from all sin. [Refrain]
