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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

My Title Clear

Full Text

1 I do not ask to live a life of ease,
I do not ask for wealth or honor,
I do not ask to do as I would please;
I only ask that when I die
My title may be clear to reign on high.

Refrain:
My title clear, no questions left behind,
A blameless record, strong and certain,
That Thou and all who look no dispute find;
Yes, Lord, I ask that when I die
My title may be clear to reign on high.

2 I do not ask for things too high for me,
I do not ask to know the morrow,
I do not ask that myst’ries I may see;
I only ask that when I die
My title may be clear to reign on high. [Refrain]

3 I only ask—this is my only plea,
I ask for grace to be a Christian,
To live a life of constant victory;
And this I ask that when I die
My title may be clear to reign on high. [Refrain]

4 When shadows lengthen on my pathway here,
When evening shades would dim my vision,
I ask for help that I may persevere;
And this I ask that when I die
My title may be clear to reign on high. [Refrain]
