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 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Trusting Him without a fear;
When the storm clouds darkly gather,
He will make the pathway clear.

Refrain:
Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
This my pray’r shall ever be;
Tho’ the path be steep or rugged,
Jesus, keep us near to Thee!

2 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Tho’ in sorrow and in pain;
Losing earthly ease and presence,
Life eternal we shall gain. [Refrain]

3 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Till life’s toil and cares are o’er,
Then in heav’n, ‘mid joys immortal,
Near to Jesus—evermore. [Refrain]
