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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Sweeter than the songs we sing,
Better than all earthly things,
Sweeter than the joy they bring,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

Jesus, blessed name,
Sweeter than all earthly fame;
Jesus, blessed name,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

2 Love like His will ne’er grow old,
Keeps me safe within the fold;
Sweeter than a world of gold,
Sweeter than all is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Jesus makes me pure and strong,
Tells me which is right from wrong,
And I praise Him all day long—
Sweeter than all is Jesus. [Refrain]
