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

Abiding rest

My soul has found abiding rest

Representative Text

1 My soul has found abiding rest,
Where living fountains flow;
Where vales are in their verdure drest,
And Sharon's roses blow.
'Tis but a step to Sychar's well,
Where Jesus speaks to me;
And oft by faith I seem to dwell
With him in Galilee.

2 All girded for the victor's race,
I run to win the prize
That Jesus offers by his grace
To faith's aspiring eyes.
I trust him still when fortunes frown,
His service is so sweet,
I lay my heavy burden down
At my Redeemer's feet.

3 I see the shining way he went
To do his Father's will;
And follow on in sweet content,
So glad he loves me still.
And if I may but serve him here
In my own humble way
I know that I shall have no fear,
In that eternal day.
