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

1 I hear my Savior saying,
“Come closer, My child, to Me”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“I will draw near to thee.”

Refrain:
O Lord, I’m so glad Thou dost love me so,
To deign to walk with me here below;
Thy sweet, tender love has won my heart,
And now we shall never, never, never part.

2 I hear my Savior saying,
“Come, lean upon My breast”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“And I will give thee rest.” [Refrain]

3 I hear my Savior saying,
“Cease from thy stuggle and care”;
I hear Him sweetly saying,
“Leave all with Me in prayer.” [Refrain]

4 I hear my Savior saying,
“I’ll never leave thee now,
If thou wilt bear My image
Upon thy heart and brow.” [Refrain]
