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

Representative Text

1 Once my eyes were blind to the beauty of the Lord,
Once my ears were closed to the pleadings of His word;
Once these hands of mine pressed the thorn-crown on His brow,
But all this He has forgiven, and it’s all right now.

Yes, it’s all right now, yes, it’s all right now,
He has heard my pray’r, and it’s all right now;
Yes, it’s all right now, yes, it’s all right now,
All my sins are cover’d, and its’ all right now.

2 Once I loved the world with its glitter and its show,
I was captive held with the pleasures here below;
But one day He came, tho’ I cannot tell you how,
With His blood my sins He covered, and it’s all right now. [Refrain]

3 O it is so precious to be alone with Him,
When the shadows falls, and my eyes with tears are dim;
Just to feel His hand rest in love upon my brow,
And to hear him gently whisper, “It is all right now.” [Refrain]
