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

54. O Jesus, dearest Lord, to Thee

1 O Jesus, dearest Lord, to Thee
My fervent thanks shall ever be
For Thine own flesh and precious blood,
Which now Thy love on me bestowed.

2 Break forth in praise, rejoice, my heart!
Exceeding riches is my part;
My Jesus now in me doth dwell;
My joy and bliss no tongue can tell.
