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

I am longing to know more of Jesus

Representative Text

1 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Oh, the charm of that wonderful name;
How it thrills me with heavenly visions,
When I think of His coming again!

I'm climbing the heights of the mountain,
For a view of its glories on high,
And to drink from its life-giving fountain,
Of the waters that never run dry.

2 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Ah, the depths of His love is unknown,
For it found me a wandering sinner,
And reclaimed me and made me His own. [Chorus]

3 I am longing to know more of Jesus!
Oh, the pitiless death on the tree!
How it stirs me to deeper devotion
When I think how He suffered for me! [Chorus]

4 I am longing to know more of Jesus,
And the journey with Him I would go;
For I know I shall stand in His presence,
When my labors are ended below. [Chorus]
