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

Everywhere With Jesus

Ev'rywhere with Jesus, thus I find sweet rest

Author: Rev. J. S. Haugh
Tune: [Ev'rywhere with Jesus, thus I find sweet rest]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Ev'rywhere with Jesus, thus I find sweet rest,
Just the way he giveth is for me the best;
Brightest day without him gives but clouded light;
Walking in his presence, even night is bright.

2. When I follow Jesus, pressing to his side,
Even ills are helpful, as a gracious tide;
If his goings lead me into pathways strait,
Yet his blessed presence, brightens ev'ry state.

3. Ev'rywhere with Jesus, counting all but dross,
To behold his glory, to exalt his cross;
Speaking forth his praises, telling men his grace,
Calling to his presence all who long for peace.
