Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There is a sweet, enduring peace,
Which Jesus ever gives
The soul that chooses Him as Lord,
And in His service lives.

Refrain:
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Surpassing all besides;
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Where Christ, the Lord, abides.

2 The passing storms of life that sweep
Across our pathway here,
Can not destroy the peace of God,
Which shineth ever clear. [Refrain]

3 This peace was purchased by the Lord,
On Calv’ry’s cruel tree,
Where Jesus shed His precious blood
To ransom you and me. [Refrain]

4 And now, ascended up on high,
The Comforter He gives,
Who fills with joy and perfect peace
The heart wherein He lives. [Refrain]
