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

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
I am weak and full of sin;
But with Thee I cannot falter,
Make and keep me pure within.

Jesus, Saviour, keep me ever
Near Thy tender bleeding side,
Guard and guide me gentle Jesus,
Let me in Thy love abide,
Let me in Thy love abide.

2 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
Let me love and cling to Thee,
May I walk by faith desiring
Naught but Thou shouldst walk with me. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Saviour, keep me near Thee,
Let me never form Thee stray,
May I turn some weary wand’rer
From the night to perfect day. [Refrain]

4 May I do what Thou wouldst have me,
May I ever sing Thy grace,
That has saved me from destruction,
That in Heav’n I’ll have a place. [Refrain]
