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

Full Text

1. There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
He hears me when my heart for mercy pleads;
And no one knows my burdens like my Jesus,
For He alone can understand my needs.

Refrain
Wonderful, unfailing friend is Jesus,
He fills my soul with singing all the day;
Wonderful, eternal friend is Jesus,
And He’ll go with me all the way.

2. There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
My sorrows He will always with me share;
And since He bore His cross, my blessèd Jesus,
There is no cross He will not help me bear. [Refrain]

3. There never was a truer friend than Jesus,
He is my life and strength, my all in all;
Upon the strong and loving arms of Jesus
My soul shall rest, and never, never fail. [Refrain]
