We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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.

Joy in the Service of the Master

There is joy in the service of the Master

Author: D. S. Warner (1842-1895)
Tune: [There Is Joy in the Service]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There is joy in the service of the Master,
Let me sing of the glory I have found;
Since I gave all to Jesus, and His favor gained,
Oh, wondrous streams of joy forever abound.

Refrain:
Jesus, my life, and my joy evermore,
Jesus forever my heart’s deep store;
Glory to God for redeeming love,
Oh, wondrous peace of God that flows from above.

2 Could you bring me the treasures of the ocean,
Could you offer the golden stores of earth,
I would sing, “Hallelujah, I’ve a greater wealth:
I have my Savior’s love, a heavenly birth.” [Refrain]

3 Could I soar to the highest throne of honor,
Could I shine with the wisdom of a sage;
All this poor, fading glory could no thought engage,
Since Jesus is my all, my own heritage. [Refrain]

4 Could I sing out the pleasure in my bosom,
How my heart thrills with glory in the way,
All the world would no longer in the desert stay,
But to my Jesus come, and even today. [Refrain]
