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

Representative Text

1 Be near me, O my Saviour,
Reveal to me Thy grace,
And help me live each moment
As gazing on Thy face.

2 Dwell in me, O my Saviour,
That I may dwell in Thee,
And know, by thus abiding,
How Thou canst make me free.

3 Thy life to me imparted,
In fullness from above,
Be all my strength for service,
Be all my pow’r to love.

4 Thro’ Thee to evil dying,
With Thee to God I’ll live,
For Thee myself denying,
By grace that Thou dost give.

5 Thus in the Spirit living,
I shall responsive be,
My service gladly giving,
And live for only Thee.
