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

Nothing but Christ, O rest my

Representative Text

1 Nothing but Christ! Oh, rest, my soul,
In his sweet love unto thee giv’n;
For, closed within His loving arms,
I find this earth my heav’n.

2 Nothing but Christ! Oh, may no pow’r
Me from my strong position move!
For, trusting in His promised Word,
I find my perfect love.

3 Nothing but Christ! Oh, blissful thought!
I lean upon His loving breast.
Upheld by His Almighty arms,
I find my perfect rest.
