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

Representative Text

1. I would draw nearer to Jesus,
In His sweet presence abide,
Constantly trying to serve Him,
Safe and secure at His side.

Refrain
I would draw nearer to Jesus,
I would draw nearer to Him;
Fully surrendered each moment,
I would draw nearer to Him.

2. I would draw nearer to Jesus,
Nothing withholding from Him,
Knowing He loves to be gracious,
I would draw nearer to Him. [Refrain]

3. I would draw nearer to Jesus,
Seeking His strength to be true,
Willing to tell of His goodness,
Gladly His blest will to do. [Refrain]
