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 Thy will to me, O God,
Is always wise and good;
I love thy will.
I have no earthly bliss
That can compare with this,
Thy loving hand I kiss,—
I love thy will.

Refrain:
Amen, amen to all thy will,
Amen to all thy word,
Whate’er thy will, I love it still;
Amen, amen, my Lord.

2 Thou hast enlarged my heart,
Taught me this better part,
To know thy will.
The mists have fled away,
And each more blissful day
I run thy will to obey,—
I love thy will. [Refrain]

3 My life of doubt is past,
My fears are gone at last,
I love thy will.
Mine is a life of joy,
No fears my soul annoy,
Thy will gives blest employ,—
I love thy will. [Refrain]

4 My ev’ry hour be spent,
My life a sweet consent,
To all thy will.
I want no other way,
Mine only to obey
Thy will from day to day,
Thy perfect will. [Refrain]

5 I love it more than life,
With it I have no strife,
I love thy will.
I shall forevermore,
On yonder blissful shore,
With all the saints adore
Thy blessed will. [Refrain]
