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 Linger with me, precious Savior,
Earthly joys are fading fast;
Lending, Lord, Thy grace and favor
Till this fleeting life has passed.
Dearest friends around me gather,
Tho' o'er some of the grave has closed;
Heeding not the icy finger,
Calm their souls on Thee reposed.

Linger with me, precious Savior,
Closely hold in Thine my hand;
Linger with me, yes, still linger,
Till within Immanuel's land.

2 Linger with me, precious Savior,
Let the western sunsets glow,
Rays of bright and shining brilliance
O'er my happy spirit throw.
Lighter, lighter be the evening,
When the day of life is done;
Dearer, dearer be Thy presence,
With me at the set of sun. [Chorus]

3 Linger with me, precious Savior,
Let Thine arms around me fold,
When the Jordan's wave I enter
Do not then release Thy hold.
When the bright eternal morning
Shall my glad free spirit wake;
Still be with me, O my Savior,
And my soul to glory take. [Chorus]
