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

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]
