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.
Harry Plantinga

Why am I so happy and free from all sin

Representative Text

1 Why am I so happy and free from all sin?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
Why do I rejoice and am happy within?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.

Refrain:
'Tis Jesus, my Savior, all blessings bestows;
'Tis Jesus relieves me from all of my woes,
My sins He forgives, for my weakness He knows,
Because my dear Savior so loves me.

2 When I was a sinner why was I His choice?
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
When I'm in affliction, why do I rejoice?
Because my dear Savior so loves me. [Refrain]

3 And still I rejoice, when much older I'm grown,
Because my dear Savior so loves me.
My poor heart rejoices with pleasures unknown,
Because my dear Savior so loves me. [Refrain]
