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.

1 There is sweet contentment in my soul today,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
He, my Lord, has taken doubts and fears away,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ.

Refrain:
Trusting, sweetly trusting,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
Hallelujah! hallelujah,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ.

2 He is true and faithful and of friends the best,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
In each golden promise I securely rest,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]

3 When the grief-clouds gather making dark our sky,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
Soon the clouds are rifted when He draweth nigh,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]

4 I will love and trust Him till my race is run,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
I will trust my Saviour till bright heav’n is won,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]
