Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Close by the side of Jesus,
Filled with his boundless love,
Cheered by the streams descending
pure from his throne above.

Refrain:
Close by the side of Jesus,
Drawn by his power divine;
Oh, how my heart rejoices!
Oh, what a song is mine!

2 Close by the side of Jesus,
Led by his hand so dear,
Heir to a full salvation,—
What has my soul to fear? [Refrain]

3 Close by the side of Jesus,
Child of his grace so free;
Learning, and still repeating,
All he has done for me. [Refrain]

4 Close by the side of Jesus,
Light is the cross I bear;
He is a firm foundation;
Safe will I rest me there. [Refrain]
