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.

Representative Text

1 Blessed Saviour, hear Thou me,
In my hour of sadness;
Draw my weary heart to Thee,
Turn its grief to gladness.

Refrain:
With The Cords of love untold,
Closer, closer bind me,
Safe within Thy precious fold,
Where no storm can find me.

2 Hear and grant my earnest pray’r,
Leave, O leave me never;
Sheltered ‘neath Thy tender care,
Hide and keep me ever. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Saviour, lead Thou me
Thro’ each night of sorrow,
Till I come to dwell with Thee,
In a glorious morrow. [Refrain]

4 Keep me, Saviour, near to Thee,
Till I cross death’s river;
Then within Thy mansions fair,
Dwell with Thee forever. [Refrain]
