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

40. Anywhere With Jesus

1 Anywhere with Jesus, says the Christian heart;
Let Him take me where He will, so we do not part;
Always sitting at His feet, there’s no room for fears;
Anywhere with Jesus, in this vale of tears.

Anywhere with Jesus, ev’rywhere I go;
Jesus shall my leader be, while I sojourn below;
Always sitting at His feet, there’s no room for fears;
Anywhere with Jesus, in this vale of tears.

2 Anywhere with Jesus, tho’ He leadeth me
Where the path is rough and long, where dangers be;
Tho’ He taketh from me all I love here below,
Anywhere with Jesus, gladly will I go. [Chorus]

3 Anywhere with Jesus, though it be the tomb,
With its fearful terror, with its dreaded gloom;
Though it be the weariness of a long-drawn life,
Fainting in the constant toil, drooping in the strife. [Chorus]

4 Anywhere with Jesus, for it cannot be
Dreary, dark, or desolate, when He is with me;
He will love me alway, ev’ry need He’ll supply;
Anywhere with Jesus, should I live or die. [Chorus]
