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.

Representative Text

1 The Savior of sinners from glory came down,
My hope of salvation to be;
Was scourged for my guilt, and was mocked with a crown—
He’s more than a friend to me.

Refrain:
He’s more than a friend, more than a friend,
He’s more than a friend to me;
This Savior of sinners, this King of all kings,
Is more than a friend to me.

2 When broken with sorrow, and trembling with fear,
To Him with my burden I flee;
No matter what troubles or trials appear—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]

3 In moments of weakness upon Him I lean,
His promise my hope and my plea;
So gently He leads, tho’ His hand is unseen—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]

4 Sometime in His beauty, thro’ wonderful grace,
This King of all kings I shall see;
And oh, ’twill be heaven to look on His face—
He’s more than a friend to me. [Refrain]
