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.
1 Ever near my Savior’s side
Would I linger night and day;
He alone shall be my guide
Thro’ life’s rough and thorny way.
Ever near, ever near,
Dearest Savior, ever near,
Thou art now the Living Way,
Near Thee ever let me stay.
2 Tho’ the night be dark and drear,
And no ray of light I see,
I’ll press on if He is near
To uphold and comfort me. [Refrain]
3 When the cheerful light of day
Raises hope and makes me strong,
Still I would beside Him stay,
Lift to Him my thankful song. [Refrain]
4 Shades of death I will not fear,
Jesus lights the darkest way;
And I know He will be near
Till I reach the perfect day. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #12126
