Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

516. Jesus, I Live to Thee

1 Jesus, I live to thee,
the loveliest and best;
my life in thee, thy life in me,
in thy blest love I rest.

2 Jesus, I die to thee,
whenever death shall come;
to die in thee is life to me
in my eternal home.

3 Whether to live or die,
I know not which is best;
to live in thee is bliss to me,
to die is endless rest.

4 Living or dying, Lord,
I ask but to be thine;
my life in thee, thy life in me,
makes heav'n forever mine.
