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.

O happy where such grace is found

O happy where such grace is found

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Happy where such grace is found,
That works the love of God;
Where souls with charity abound,
To shew itself abroad.

2 This proves the glory of the cause,
For which the Church contends;
Defends the doctrine of the Cross,
On which our hope depends.

3 This hope still bids us to endure,
And patiently to wait:
Till God reveals his love and pow'r
To change our mournful state.

4 Those tribulations and distress,
For Jesus' sake we bear;
They are sure tokens of his grace,
His providence and care.

5 With Christ the Lord shall be reveal'd
With all the Ang'lic Host;
His promises will be fulfill'd,
And none of them be lost.

6 He will reward his suff'ring saints
For all their toil and pain:
Where not a foe or least complaint,
Shall trouble them again.
