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 Nearer to Jesus I am drawing ev’ry day,
Closer clinging to His side I press on my way;
Sweeter falls the music of His voice upon mine ear,
Hoping, trusting, waiting, I have nothing to fear.

Nearer, nearer,
Nearer blessed Jesus,
Nearer draw me to Thee, closer yet I would be;
Whisper sweetest words of comfort, hold and strengthen me;
Help me Savior, help me to live nearer to Thee.

2 Nearer to Jesus ev’ry morning, noon and night,
Living in His counsel, and sustained by His might,
All the way my soul rejoices in His precious love,
And I’ll trust Him till at last I’m crown’d His above. [Refrain]

3 Nearer to Jesus I am longing yet to be,
Nearer, nearer, till His blessed face I can see;
Nearer, till around the throne, with all the ransom’d throng,
I shall see Him face to face, and praise Him in song. [Refrain]
