Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Who for blindness gave me sight?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who for weakness gives me might?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who, when angry billows roll,
Bringeth quiet to my soul?
Who will help me reach the goal?
Jesus, only Jesus.

Jesus, He is my King,
Jesus, only Jesus;
Of His love I’ll ever sing,
Jesus, only Jesus.

2 Who my heart with gladness fills?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who its restless longing stills?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who gives happiness and joy,
That all earth could not destroy?
Who gives peace without alloy?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Who from death my soul has freed?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who has all I want or need?
Jesus, only Jesus;
Who can banish doubt and fears?
Who, in trouble always cheers?
Who each faint petition hears?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Yes, ‘tis Jesus makes me strong,
Jesus, only Jesus;
‘Tis to Him that I belong—
Jesus, only Jesus;
Only Jesus all the way,
Only Him from day to day;
Evermore my Guide and stay,
Jesus, only Jesus. [Refrain]
