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

Jesus, I, a helpless mortal

Representative Text

1. Jesus, I, a helpless mortal,
Ere I perish, come to thee;
Thou of life the only portal,
Give me immortality:
Soon this world must pass away;
Nought abides except in thee;
Give me life that lasts for aye;
Give me immortality.

2. Thou hast said thy sheep shall never,
Never perish cease to be;
O, I want to live forever;
Give me immortality:
Thou of hope the only door,
Thou of life the living tree,
Give me life for evermore;
Give me immorality.

3. Thou with endless life the power,
Great Melchisedek I see;
Share with me this priceless dower;
Give me immortality:
King of righteousness and peace,
Priest of God's eternity,
Give me life that ne'er shall cease;
Give me immortality.

4. Saviour dear, I yield thee now
Glory that belongs to thee;
Bread of life eternal, thou;
Give me immortality:
Save from death as well as sin;
Let me live, and live with thee:
Life of ages would I win;
Give me immortality.
