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 rejoicing, and sweet is my song,
While onward to Zion I journey along;
No thorns in my pathway, no clouds can I see,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

Refrain:
Happy in thee, happy in thee,
My soul is rejoicing, my spirit is free,
And, oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

2 Thy presence is with me, thy image I bear;
Thy banner is o’er me, thy garment I wear;
The world and its pleasures are nothing to me,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]

3 I walk in thy sunshine, I rest in thy smile,
And visions of glory the moments beguile;
Thy peace like a river is flowing for me,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]

4 I know there’s a mansion preparing above,
Where soon thou wilt call me to feast on thy love;
Yet here while I tarry content will I be,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]
