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 Would you feel your life grow sweeter ev’ry day?
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
Would you see the thorns and shadows flee away?
Trust the precious love of Jesus.

Refrain:
Trust the love of Jesus, trust it ev’ry day,
Let it be your comfort, joy and hope, and stay;
Let it overflow you, praise it all the way,
Trust the precious love of Jesus.

2 If you wish to keep your soul from doubt and sin,
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
He alone can keep you pure and sweet within,
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Are you lost in darkness? Comfort do you need?
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
To the loving Savior none in vain will plead
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Do you wish to win the golden crown of life
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
Till all storms are over, till shall end the strife,
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]
