Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

O the comforting Christ

Representative Text

1 O the Comforting Christ, and the wealth of His grace!
I marvel His love is so broad!
Nor angels the bound of His bounties can trace,—
‘Tis wide as the fullness of God.
I dream of glory; I ponder the life;
My heart feels the thrill of His “Come!”
Tho’ toss’d in the turbulent tumult and strife,
I know He will shelter me home.

2 The Comforting Christ hath the light that I need;
Tho’ shadows encompass the way,
I dread not the darkness; His word is my creed;
He never will answer me “nay!”
His Spirit in me is a lamp to my path—
I walk in the light of His throne;
I fear not His frown nor the doom of His wrath,
For I am beloved and His own.

3 The fruits of the Spirit, untrampled by law,
He sendeth, all free, from above;
The virtues I need His omniscience foresaw—
Faith, purity, goodness and love.
I praise Him for pardon, for cleansing from sin;
His promise, for me, hath suffic’d;
I know I am safe and at last shall go in
To dwell with the Comforting Christ.
