Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 staar og rækker Hænder
Til de arme Sjæle ud,
Tvilen fer og Troen kjender,
Siger: Herre min og Gud!
Fuld af Himlens Kjærlighed
Byder han dem Aand og Fred,
Som en Frugt udaf sin Pine;
Herren kjender alle Sine.

2 Søde Jesus, naar jeg leder
Efter dig i Tvilens Nat,
Naar mit Suk afmægtigt beder,
Lad min Sjæl da faa dig fat!
Tal dit store: Det er jeg!
Saa skal Mørkheds Magter ei
Mig den mindste Skade gjøre,
Thi min Jesu Magt er større.
