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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 Come, my Redeemer, come,
Be Thou my stay,
And thro' life’s rugged path
Direct my way.

Hold Thou me up,
O keep me near Thy side;
I ask no other help,
No other guide.

2 Come, my Redeemer, come,
My only rest,
And dwell within my heart
A constant guest. [Refrain]

3 Come, my Redeemer, come,
I shall not fear
The storms that o’er me break
If Thou art near. [Refrain]

4 Come, my Redeemer, come,
My faith increase,
And hush these longing sighs
To perfect peace. [Refrain]
