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

Representative Text

1. My soul is joyful in the Lord;
His light shines all around;
For Jesus is my life, my way;
His love in me abounds.

I am walking, walking in the light,
The truth, the light, the way;
I am walking, walking in the light,
The beautiful light of God today.

2. His blood has cleansed me from all sin;
I’m every whit made whole;
And life and light shine now within,
And glory fills my soul. [Refrain]

3. My life is hid with Christ in God;
My bread is in His Word;
My meat and drink His righteousness,
In Him I live and move. [Refrain]

4. I care not for this world below;
It has no charms I love;
I live by faith and faith alone;
I seek a home above. [Refrain]
