Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Nearer To Jesus

Full Text

1 Nearer, still nearer, close to my Lord;
I will seek Jesus in prayer and the Word.
As I draw near to my precious Lord:
His Word has promised His Spirit outpoured!
His Word has promised His Spirit outpoured!

2 Each day I’ll follow His blest commands,
Each day I’ll praise Him and cling to His hand.
Walking with Jesus I’ll surely find
All my desires in Jesus are mine!
All my desires in Jesus are mine!

3 Help of the helpless, my blessèd Lord!
Caring for each one, in love watching o’er;
Holy compassion guarding our way:
Jesus my Shepherd, help me not to stray,
Jesus my Shepherd, help me not to stray.

4 Nearer still nearer, to end of time.
Speaking His gospel salvation divine.
Showing His way and doing His will:
Some day in Heaven our joy be fulfilled!
Some day in Heaven our joy be fulfilled!
