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.

Representative Text

1 O the joy of his salvation,
Christ has made my heart his home,
Filling life with brightest sunshine
Since the Comforter has come.

Since the Comforter has come,
Since the Comforter has come,
O the calm and holy quiet
Since the Comforter has come.

2 When my path is sad and lonely,
And the clouds, their shadows spread,
Then so close on his dear bosom,
Do I pillow there my head. [Refrain]

3 So I rest, my ev’ry moment
Under his complete control,
Blessed peace he ever gives me,
And he satisfies my soul. [Refrain]

4 He abides to cheer and comfort,
And I would no longer roam,
For I have a peace eternal
Since the Comforter has come. [Refrain]
