Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Carry me tenderly, Jesus

Full Text

1 Carry me tenderly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Gather me safe in thine arms so strong;
Carry me tenderly over life’s billows,
Carry me tenderly all the day long.

All the day long, all the day long,
Comfort my spirit, and fill me with song;
Carry me tenderly over life’s billows,
Tenderly, lovingly, all the day long.

2 Speak to me lovingly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Whisper thy name in my care worn heart;
Grant me thy beautiful sunlight of glory,
Then shall my fear like a dream depart. [Refrain]

3 Speak to my lovingly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Sweeter than music thy words that fall;
Thou art my hiding-place, O my Redeemer,
Thou art my portion, my life, my all. [Refrain]

4 Carry me tenderly thro’ the dark valley,
Carry me tenderly o’er the sea;
Then shall my conflicts and trials be ended,
Then shall I anchor, O Lord, with thee. [Refrain]
