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 The Seer came back from paradise
To earth with its sorrow and pain;
There floated to him from refulgent skies
The words of this glad refrain:

“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
For my strength is made perfect in weakness;
“My grace is sufficient for thee.”

2 Alone in the hush of the silent night,
Alone with my prayer and pain,
Came singing to me, with the morning light,
The peace of this sweet refrain: [Refrain]

3 Like thorns in the crown that the Saviour wore,
Come our “thorns in the flesh” again;
He whispers to each that message of yore,
The joy of this same refrain: [Refrain]
