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 Let earth’s brightest pleasures vanish,
Let its gems and riches flee;
Give to me my Saviour, Jesus,
And His love so full and free.

Give me Jesus, only Jesus,
Grace and mercy from above;
With Him I shall ne’er be lonely,
Give me Jesus and His love.

2 In my sorrow Jesus comforts
Till each bitter trial is o’er,
With Him I shall ne’er be lonely,
Give me Jesus, nothing more. [Refrain]

3 In the hour of great temptation,
Let me to my Saviour fly;
Jesus, while on earth I linger,
Jesus, when at last I die. [Refrain]
