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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Jesu, du min fröjd och fromma

Representative Text

1 Jesus, du min fröjd och fromma,
All min glädje och min tröst,
Värdes nådigt till mig komma
Med ditt ord, din ljufva röst!
Kom, o Jesus, blif mig när,
Låt mig blifva där du är.

2 Jesus, låt mig städse börja
I ditt namn allt hvad jag gör,
Att jag måtte framgång spörja
Och så sluta, som jag bör.
Kom, o Jesus, blif mig när,
Låt mig blifva där du är.

3 Alla mina ord och tankar,
Jesus, låt behaga dig;
Laga, att jag flitigt samkar
Det, som evigt gagnar mig.
Kom, o Jesus, blif mig när,
Låt mig blifva där du är.
