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

1 O blessed Jesus, O Saviour divine,
Joy! what a joy! I feel thou art mine;
Flowers are bright, but fairer art thou,
Fairer than all things, blessed just now.

Refrain:
Praise him, O praise him,
Praise him with gladness all the day long;
Praise him, O praise him, Saviour divine,
Praise him with gladness, dear Saviour mine.

2 Praise him, O praise him, he found me when lost,
Out on the sea by rude tempests tossed;
O bless his name! he brought me to shore;
Praise him, O praise him, praise evermore. [Refrain]

3 Robed in the garments of sin and of shame,
Now clothed in white, oh, bless ye his name;
Jesus himself my spirit has crowned,
All things rejoice, the lost one is found. [Refrain]

4 Oh, I rejoice, and I sing and I pray,
Jesus has turned my nights into day,
Sweetens my cup and hushes the strife,
Helps me to bear the sorrows of life. [Refrain]
