Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 something in my soul
Which keeps the shadows all away;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something lightens every burden,
Gives me gladness day by day,
It is love, my Savior’s love.

Refrain:
O the precious love of Jesus,
How it thrills my ransomed soul!
More and more I’ll sing its praises
While the happy ages roll.

2 When the tempter tries to win me
Something keeps me true and strong;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something makes my life a blessing
To the needy in the throng,
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]

3 When misfortune overtakes me
Something calms my troubled breast;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
Something draws my soul to heaven,
That sweet land of peace and rest.
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]

4 Soul astray and bowed in sorrow,
Something waits for you today;
It is love, my Savior’s love!
It would give you peace and comfort,
Make your burdens roll away,
It is love, my Savior’s love. [Refrain]
