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 song in my heart as I journey along,
There’s a peace that will ever endure;
For there’s One walking with me to whom I belong,
In His keeping my soul is secure.

A Friend I have found who ever walks with me,
His name is Jesus, Jesus,
In Him I’m rejoicing from my sin set free,
Praising my Jesus.

2 He hath lifted me up from the bondage of sin,
From distress to a place at His side,
He hath help’d me o’er evil a vict’ry to win,
As rejoicing with Him I abide. [Refrain]

3 Living now ev’ry day in the light of His face,
Fearing not, tho’ the shadows may fall;
I will trustingly lean on His mercy and grace,
For He’s my loving Saviour, my all. [Refrain]
