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.

I come to thee, I come to thee, thou precious lamb

Representative Text

1 I come to Thee, I come to Thee!
Thou precious Lamb who died for me;
I rest confiding in Thy Word,
And "cast my burden on the Lord."
I come to Thee with all my grief,
Dear Savior, help my unbelief;
Thy blessèd name, my only plea,
With this, O Lord, I come to Thee!

2 I come to Thee, whose sovereign power
Can cheer me in the darkest hour;
I come to Thee, thro’ storm and shade—
For Thou hast said, "Be not afraid."
I come to Thee with all my tears,
My pain and sorrow, doubts and fears;
Thou precious Lamb, who died for me,
I come to Thee, I come to Thee!

3 To Thee my trembling spirit flies,
When faith grows weak, and comfort dies,
I bow adoring at Thy feet,
And hold with Thee communion sweet—
O wondrous love! O joy divine!
To feel Thee near and call Thee mine!
Thou precious Lamb, who died for me,
I come to Thee, I come to Thee.
