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 When the love of Jesus
Dwelleth in the heart,
We, like loving Mary,
Choose the better part;
And in love abiding,
Joyful on our way,
We will journey onward
To the perfect day.

Come, thou blessed Saviour,
Dwell within this heart of mine;
Then among the ransomed,
I in heav’n will shine.

2 If the great example
Of our Master dear,
Be our aim and motto
While we linger here,—
If our lives are simple,
Undefiled as His,
We shall then in heaven
See Him as He is. [Refrain]

3 Let us strive to follow
Jesus all the way,
Till we see the morning
Of the perfect day;
Then as stars forever,
Each a spotless gem,
We shall shine eternal
In His diadem. [Refrain]
