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

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.
