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

Full Text

1. When Jesus no longer stands preciously nigh,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
I look to the Rock that is higher than I,
And peace, wondrous peace floods my soul.

Refrain
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
Clouds at His presence roll away;
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
His glory turns my darkness into day.

2. The sun may be shining on fields bright and gay,
With springtime perfumes in the breeze;
Yet, life without Jesus is winter in May,
Without Him no prospect can please. [Refrain]

3. If living like Paul all victorious and free,
Tho’ beaten while multitudes stare;
Tho’ put behind bars ’twould be heaven to me,
For Jesus will dwell with me there. [Refrain]

4. If faithful in standing for what I believe
Brings scoffing and fire, I can dare
To laugh in the furnace where I am to burn,
For Jesus will dwell with me there. [Refrain]
