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 How Sweet to Sing of Jesus

O how sweet to sing of Jesus, Just to make the world more glad

Author: Nellie A. Montgomery
Tune: [O how sweet to sing of Jesus]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O how sweet to sing of Jesus,
Just to make the world more glad;
Weary ones may pause to listen,
Saddened hearts may grow less sad.

O ‘tis sweet to sing of Jesus,
It will fill each passing day
With the beauty of His presence,
And make brighter all the way.

2 O how sweet to work for Jesus,
Then it is He seems most near;
When the task is hard He helps us,
And His love casts out all fear. [Chorus]

3 O how sweet to tell of Jesus,
Tell how much He is to me,
Bid one hungry soul, despairing,
Just to come, and taste, and see. [Chorus]
