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

18. My Lord and I

1 I have a Friend so precious,
So very dear to me;
He loves me with such perfect love,
He loves me faithfully!
I could not live apart from Him,
I love to feel Him nigh;
And so we dwell together,
My Lord and I.

My Lord and I,
My Lord and I;
And so we dwell together,
My Lord and I.

2 Sometimes I’m faint and weary,
He knows that I am weak,
And as He bids me lean on Him,
His help I’ll gladly seek.
He leads me in the path of light,
Beneath a sunny sky;
And so we walk together,
My Lord and I.

My Lord and I,
My Lord and I;
And so we walk together,
My Lord and I.

3 I tell Him all my sorrows,
I tell Him all my joys,
I tell Him all that pleases me,
I tell Him what annoys.
He tells me what I ought to do,
He tells me what to try;
And so we talk together,
My Lord and I.

My Lord and I,
My Lord and I;
And so we talk together,
My Lord and I.

4 I have His yoke upon me,
And easy ‘tis to bear;
In burdens which He carries,
I gladly take a share;
For ‘tis my highest happiness
To have Him always nigh;
We bear the yoke together,
My Lord and I.

My Lord and I,
My Lord and I;
We bear the yoke together,
My Lord and I.
