We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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.

Chorus:
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. [Chorus]

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,
And oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in Thee. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]
