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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Draw me closer to thee
With the joys of peace,
Bid my wand’ring spirit,
From its wand’rings cease;
Let the balm of Gilead,
Heal my wounded heart,
Take it Savior, let it
Never from thee part.

2 Draw me closer to thee
With the cords of love,
Guide my weak petition
To thy throne above;
Let thy grace supply me,
With thy keeping pow’r,
Let me feel the cleansing
Ev’ry day and hour.

3 Draw me closer to thee
With the precious hope,
That when life is ended,
Heaven’s gate will ope
To receive my spirit
To that home above,
There to dwell forever,
In my Savior’s love.
