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. When the sun shines bright and your heart is light,
Jesus is the friend you need;
When the clouds hang low in this world of woe,
Jesus is the friend you need.

Refrain
Jesus is the friend you need,
Such a friend is He indeed;
He who noteth every tear,
He will banish every fear,
Jesus is the friend you need.

2. If you’re lost in sin, all is dark within,
Jesus is the friend you need;
God alone can save through the Son He gave,
Jesus is the friend you need. [Refrain]

3. When in that sad hour, when in death’s grim pow’r,
Jesus is the friend you need;
If you would prepare ’gainst the tempter’s snare,
Jesus is the friend you need. [Refrain]

4. When the cares of life all around are rife,
Jesus is the friend you need;
Glory to His name, always He’s the same,
Jesus is the friend you need. [Refrain]
