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.

1. When lost in sin, I came to Christ my Savior,
Who for me on the cross did die;
He banished sin and sadness,
And gave me joy and gladness;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy!

Refrain
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;
He’s coming again, forever to reign,
He’s coming as King to reign.
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;

2. The world quite failed to give me satisfaction,
Though its vain pleasures I did try;
An aching void they gave me,
From which the Lord did save me;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]

3. And ever since I learned to live for Jesus,
Joy and peace came without alloy;
The Devil oft has tried me, but Jesus Christ inside me
Keeps me running over with joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]

4. Poor wandering one, astray in sin and sadness,
Come to Christ who can sin destroy;
Although you are so wretched,
His arm is now outstretched,
To save your soul and give you perfect joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]
