We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 There is joy in all that we can find to do,
For the dear Redeemer whom we love,
There’s an exultation, and a promise true,
Of the far greater bliss stored up above.

Joy in all we do, joy in all we say,
Gladness in our hearts, peace and blessing night and day,
Whatsoe’er betide, happiness ‘twill bring,
Joy we’ll surely find in the service of our King.

2 There is joy that lightens ev’ry burd’ning load,
And that smoothes the roughest path we tread,
There is joy that brightens ev’ry darkened road,
Like a rainbow of glory overhead. [Chorus]

3 There is joy in labor for our Lord and King,
In obedience to His holy will,
For whatever the service that to Him we bring
Our reward will be richer, sweeter still. [Chorus]
