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

Representative Text

1 O my heart is full of laughter,
I am very, very glad;
For I have a precious treasure,
Such as princes never had.

Refrain:
Wilt thou have this precious “Ishi,”
Bridegroom of the soul to be?
He, the fairest of ten thousand,
Waits in love to welcome thee.

2 Ishi, Ishi is the jewel,
Mine he is while ages roll;
Angels taste not of such glory,
Holy Ishi of the soul. [Refrain]

3 Many beauteous names thou bearest,
Brother, Shepherd, Friend and King,
But they none unto my spirit
Such divine support can bring. [Refrain]

4 Other joys are short and fleeting;
Thou and I can never part;
Thou art altogether lovely,
Ishi, Ishi of my heart. [Refrain]
