Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Alone with Jesus, ’tis so sweet
To worship at His lovely feet,
To raise our hearts in grateful praise,
For all His wondrous works and ways.

2 Alone with Jesus in the storm,
He’ll keep us from all fear and harm
If we but trust Him day by day,
Although it be a stormy way.

3 Alone with Jesus, all is well,
Beneath His smile my soul would dwell;
O Lord, how sweet to know and feel
Thy love and Thy eternal seal!

4 Alone with Jesus; to express
The perfect peace we here possess
An angel’s tongue might well employ;
Alone with Jesus, oh, what joy!

5 Alone with Jesus, hour by hour,
Preserved by His almighty pow’r;
And when the storms of life are o’er,
With Him we’ll dwell forevermore.
