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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 What a blessed hope is mine,
Thro’ the love of Jesus;
I’m an heir of life divine,
Thro’ the love of Jesus.

He will my soul defend;
He, my unchanging Friend;
He will keep me to the end:
All glory be to Jesus.

2 I can sing without fear,
Praise the name of Jesus;
He, my present help, is near,
Praise the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Pressing on my pilgrim way,
Trusting only Jesus,
O ‘tis joy from day to day,
Trusting only Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Thus my journey I’ll pursue,
Looking unto Jesus,
Till the land of rest I view,
There to dwell with Jesus. [Refrain]
