We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Peace, all ye [the] sorrows of the heart

Peace, all ye [the] sorrows of the heart

Representative Text

1 Peace, all ye sorrows of the heart,
And all my tears be dry:
That Christian's courage ne'er can sink,
Who views his Lord on high.

2 "I live forever, (Jesus saith)
And you with me shall live;
Receive with pleasure ev'ry pledge
My pow'r and love can give.

3 "Fair mansions in my Father's house
For all his children wait;
And I, your elder brother, go
To open wide the gate.

4 "United in eternal love,
My followers shall remain;
And with rejoicing hearts shall share
The honors of my reign."

5 Yes, Lord, thy gracious words we hear,
And cordial joys they bring.
Frail nature may extort a groan,
But faith thy name shall sing.

Philip Doddridge (b. London, England, 1702; d. Lisbon, Portugal, 1751) belonged to the Non-conformist Church (not associated with the Church of England).
