Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Dear Savior, now as we

Representative Text

1. Dear Saviour, now as we must part,
May thy rich love dwell in each heart;
Be with us till again we meet
To worship at thy precious feet.

Be with us, Saviour, till we meet
To worship at thy precious feet;
Oh, lead us gently all the way
Unto the realms of endless day.

2. What here we've learn'd from thy sweet word
Whatever good we may have heard,
Help us to heed it every day
That from thy side we may not stray. [Chorus]

3. If ne'er again we here shall meet
To honor thee by service sweet;
Oh may we meet around thy throne
When thou shalt come to claim thine own. [Chorus]
