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.

Jesu, grant me this, I pray

Full Text

1 Jesu, grant me this, I pray,
ever in thy heart to stay;
let me evermore abide
hidden in thy wounded side.

2 If the world or Satan lay
tempting snares about my way,
I am safe when I abide
in thy heart and wounded side.

3 If the flesh, more dangerous still,

naught I fear when I abide
in thy heart and wounded side.

4 Death will come one day to me;
Jesu, cast me not from thee:
dying let me still abide
in thy heart and wounded side.
