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 Not all the treasures of the earth,
Can vie for beauty or for worth,
With those who in God’s Word abound,
For there the richest gems are found.

2 No costly vesture do I crave,
No princely jewels would I have,
But robed with Thy humility,
O Savior, I would ever be.

3 The crowns of earth, oh, do not bring,
Tho’ won by proudest prince or king,
For, in a land more bright and fair,
There is the crown I long to wear.

4 Tho’ but a wanderer I roam,
Not here I seek my rest or home,
For I’ve a portion with the blest,
And only there shall be my rest.
