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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus, I am coming now,
Coming to the fountain;
Precious is th'atoning blood,
Shed on Calvary's mountain.

Coming now, coming now,
Seeking grace and favor,
That my weary soul may find
Rest in thee forever.

2 Jesus, make me true to thee,
Pure, and meek, and lowly,
While I walk the narrow way
To the city holy. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, fill my heart with peace,
Flowing like a river;
Day by day my joy increase,
Till the glad forever. [Refrain]

Moffat, Robert, D.D., born at Ormiston, Dec. 21, 1795, and died Aug. 9, 1883. Dr. Moffat was engaged for many years as a missionary in Bechuanaland, and assisted in preparing a hymn-book for the use of the London Missionary Society's congregations in that country. He contributed thereto upwards of 250 original and translated hymns (see p. 756, ii.). His English hymn for children, "Can I, a little child?" (Missions) is very popular; it is dated 1841. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
