We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

117. Jesus, kom dog selv til mig

1 Jesus, kom dog selv til mig,
Og forbliv uryggelig!
Kom, min Sjæleven saa kjær,
Jeg alene dig begjær.

2 Verdens Lyst og Liflighed
Giver Sjælen ingen Fred,
Vil kun Jesus hos mig bo,
Fattes mig ei Trøst og Ro.

3 Verdens Rigdom, Magt og Pragt
Holder jeg kun i Foragt,
Jesus, din Fornedring er
Al den Ære jeg begjær!

4 Tages al Ting fra mig bort,
Jeg dit ikke skjøtter stort,
Du, o Jesus, er den Del,
Jeg udvælger for min Sjæl.

5 Ingen anden lukkes ind
I mit Hjerte, Hu og Sind.
Ak, saa kom da, Sjæleven,
Driv al Sorgen fra mig hen!

6 Tusind Gange ønskes du,
Som er ene i min Hu
Tusind Gang' jeg beder dig,
Jesus, kom, og bliv hos mig!

7 Nu jeg taalig vente vil,
Lægger dette Suk hertil
Herre Jesus, trøst mig, naar
Jeg af denne Verden gaar.
