Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

1 If you in Heav’n would stay, throughout eternal day,
Self and sin must be denied;
To Jesus we must plead, He’ll make us free indeed,
And place us on the heav’nly side.

I’ll trust Him whatsoe’er betide,
I’ll trust Him, He has ne’er denied;
To Jesus I will plead, He’ll meet my every need,
And keep me on the heav’nly side.

2 O! sinner, come just now, and unto Jesus bow,
Give up all your sin and pride;
For Jesus is the way, just look to Him and say,
Lord place me on the heav’nly side. [Refrain]

3 And when my days are done, and I my race have run,
I must cross the chilly tide.
But Jesus will be there, I have no need to fear,
He’ll land me on the heav’nly side. [Refrain]
