Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 There is peace only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And that peace, wretched souls may claim,
Only in the name of Jesus!

Name of Jesus, Name of Jesus!
When you pray, O pray in His name,
Go to God with every care;
Tell it to Him in your pray’r,
Only in the name of Jesus.

2 There is strength only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And man can his wild passions tame,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Tell to God, what your sins have been,
Only in the name of Jesus;
He can make you all pure within,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Tell to God what your weakness is,
Only in the name of Jesus.
He is strong, and to help is His,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
