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 one who understands our hearts,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
And for ev’ry need His grace imparts,
Jesus, the best friend of all.

Refrain:
Jesus, the best friend of all,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He knows our ev’ry care,
And will ev’ry burden bear,
Jesus, the best friend of all.

2 He will soothe the comfort in distress,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He will sympathize, and help and bless,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]

3 In temptation He will help thee stand,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
Will support thee with His strong right hand,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]

4 There is one who died for you and me,
Jesus, the best friend of all;
He will give us pardon full and free,
Jesus, the best friend of all. [Refrain]
