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’s a place where my soul ever feels a repose
That the world and its joys cannot give;
Where the blessings of heaven their sweetness disclose,
And in answer to prayer I receive.

Refrain:
‘Tis the house of the Lord, ‘tis the Christian’s retreat,
Where I oft get a glimpse of the goal;
‘Tis the foot of the Cross, ‘tis the dear mercy seat,
‘Tis the place I find rest to my soul.

2 There’s a place where my Saviour has promised to meet,
And bestow what in faith I may ask;
Where to work is a pleasure and service is sweet,
And where duty is never a task. [Refrain]

3 There’s a place of all others the dearest—the best;
I have roamed for its equal in vain;
But I ever return to this eden of rest,
With a vow that I’ll ever remain. [Refrain]

4 There’s a place the most favored beneath the blue sky,
Where the sweetest of pastures abound;
And I pray the good Lord, when my time comes to die,
In this Good Shepherds’ fold I’ll be found. [Refrain]
