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 Just where I am, oh, let me be
A faithful witness, Lord, for Thee;
While others seek a wider sphere,
Oh, keep me faithful, Lord, just here!

2 Just where I am; the way is rough,
But Thou art near—it is enough;
They rest who lean upon Thine arm—
Oh, make me strong and keep me calm!

3 And if Thou, Lord, should point the way
To lands afar where shines no ray
Of light divine, then let me go,
To speak of Christ, and heal their woe.

4 Or if at home Thou bid me stay,
Let me be used to smooth the way
Of those who go at duty’s call,
Leaving their home, their friends, their all.

5 Just where I am, oh, let me win
Some sad, despairing soul from sin;
With heart aflame and face aglow,
Strong in Thy strength, Lord, let me go.

The Gospel in Song, 1926 (Timeless Truths)
