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,

1 You ask what makes me happy
The whole day long,
Why I am always singing
A gladsome song;
Ah, well I do remember
When song began to start,
’Twas Jesus set the music
Ringing in my heart.

Chorus:
In my heart, He set the music ringing,
In my life a heav’nly gladness bringing;
Ah, well do I remember
When song began to start,
’Twas Jesus set the music
Ringing in my heart.

2 I cannot keep from singing
Since that glad day,
When Jesus took, in mercy,
Mmy sins away;
He opened up a fountain
Whence streams of gladness start,
’Twas Jesus set the music
Ringing in my heart. [Chorus]

3 His love each day is growing
More sweet to me,
Each day new grace and beauty
In Him I see;
For all this world can offer
From Him I would not part,
Since He has set the music
Ringing in my heart. [Chorus]
