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.

1 O, my song is ever new and my faith is bright and clear,
Glory to Jesus! I’m happy in his love;
To a mansion in the sky I can read my title clear,
Glory to Jesus forever!

Praise him, praise him, praise him, O my soul!
In the precious blood of Calvary he cleans’d and made me whole;
I will sing redeeming love, while eternal ages roll,
Glory to Jesus forever!

2 O, the story of his grace, I can tell it o’er and o’er,
Glory to Jesus! I’m happy in his love;
For it brings to me a joy that I never knew before,
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]

3 I have left my all to him and I know he cares for me,
Glory to Jesus! I’m happy in his love;
In his mercy I can trust, for his guiding hand I see,
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]

4 I am on my journey home,—hallelujah to his name,—
Glory to Jesus! I’m happy in his love;
With the ransom’d of the Lord, soon to join the loud acclaim,
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]
