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.

Jesus, smile upon us

Representative Text

1. Blessed Jesus, smile upon us now,
Gathered here to praise thy name;
Hear us as before thy throne we bow,
Keep thy lambs from sin and shame.

Jesus, Saviour, come with us abide,
Fill out hearts with love divine;
Keep us closely by thy precious side,
Let us evermore be thine.

2. In this world so dark with clouds of sin
May we shine with heav'nly light;
Precious souls from danger help us win,
To be thine in glory bright. [Chorus]

3. May we ever kind and gentle be,
Pure in heart and filled with love;
So that those around us all may see
We are like our Lord above. [Chorus]

4. When in kingly robes thou shalt appear
Coming down the flaming sky,
May we dwell with thee, O Saviour dear,
In that blessed bye and bye. [Chorus]
