Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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]
