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 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 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,

570. Hid Away with Jesus

1 I’m hid away with Christ in God,
Yes, hid away with Jesus;
I’m now beneath the dripping blood,
I’m hid away with Jesus;
I’m walking with my blessed Lord,
I’m trusting in His precious word,
I find His service is not hard,
I’m hid away with Jesus.

Refrain:
I’m hid away, yes, hid away,
I’m hid with Christ in God;
I’m dead to sin, alive in Christ,
I’m washed in His blood.

2 The narrow way is now so plain,
I’m hid away with Jesus;
That fools shall never err therein,
I’m hid away with Jesus;
The gate that’s strait is just before,
Which when we reach we’ll sigh no more,
Our sorrows then will all be o’er,
I’m hid away with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Oh, brother dear, to keep good cheer,
Be hid away with Jesus;
For then you’ll find your Savior near,
Keep hid away with Jesus;
We’re basking now in heaven’s light,
By faith and prayer our way shines bright,
We get so near that heav’n’s in sight,
When hid away with Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sinner turn to God and live,
Be hid away with Jesus;
A crown of life to you He’ll give,
When hid away with Jesus;
Repent, believe, and love Him too,
For He has done so much for you,
He’ll wash and cleanse you through and through,
Be hid away with Jesus. [Refrain]
