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.
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.
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]Source: Joyful Sound: a collection of new hymns and music with familiar selections #1
