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 Nearer my Saviour, still nearer to Thee,
This earth’s fleeting comforts, are nothing to me;
Perishing daily, like shadows they flee,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee.

Refrain:
Seeking a refuge, seeking a refuge,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee,
Seeking a refuge, seeking a refuge,
I’m seeking a refuge, blest Saviour in Thee.

2 Though I have wandered again and again,
Yet ever I hear this inviting refrain;
Let nothing keep thee away from my love,
It turns my affections to heaven above. [Refrain]

3 Dark are the shadows of sorrow and woe,
But Jesus will light up the pathway I know;
Beautiful mansions awaiting on high,
With this blest assurance, my hope cannot die. [Refrain]

4 When the dark valley I’m called to pass thro’,
A light from those mansions will open to view;
Jesus my Saviour, the bright Morning Star,
Will lead to the city whose gates are ajar. [Refrain]
