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.

Hid away with Jesus

Full Text

1 From all the world I’ve turned aside,
And found a fold of shelter;
In Christ I safely now abide,
Oh, praise His name forever.

Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
I’m washed and cleansed in Jesus’ blood,
My heart is filled with praises;
Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
“My life is hid with Christ in God,”
I’m hid away with Jesus.

2 A home in sect, no, not for me;
My home came down from heaven—
Jerusalem, so pure and free!
To all the door is open. [Refrain]

3 Surrounded by salvation’s wall,
A fortress strong, abiding,
The pow’rs of earth, “the gates of hell,”
Are weak and unprevailing. [Refrain]

4 Jerusalem—home from above—
The home that hath foundation;
Her children all are born of love,
And blest with full salvation. [Refrain]
