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 Savior, Love divine

Representative Text

1. Jesus Saviour, Love divine,
Come and keep this heart of mine;
Free it from its weight of care,
Keep it tender, full of prayer.

Kept by thine almighty power,
Feel thy blood applied each hour;
Sweetly in thy love abide,
Saved by keeping near thy side.

2. May thy Spirit's tender glow,
Thro' its every feeling flow;
Pointing lost ones to his blood,
With its cleansing, healing flood. [Chorus]

3. Waiting for the coming day,
When all sin shall pass away;
When the faithful, saved by grace,
Ever shall behold his face. [Chorus]

4. Till that day, dear Jesus, be
Everything I need, to me;
Keep me in thy precious love,
Till I view thee from above. [Chorus]

Stanton, Frederick S. (New Bedford, Massachusetts, December 20, 1857--October 1, 1915, New Bedford). Held a Bachelor of Music degree and was ordained to the Advent Christian ministry. He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
