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.
1 Near to Jesus, near to Jesus,
Trusting Him without a fear;
When the storm clouds darkly gather,
He will make the pathway clear.
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]Source: Awakening Songs for the Church, Sunday School and Evangelistic Services #71
