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 O Blessed Redeemer, I know I am Thine,
The voice of Thy spirit bears witness with mine,
Yet more to Thy image conformed would I be,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me.

Refrain:
Nearer to me, nearer to me,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me.

2 Thy grace ever needed each moment impart,
Subdue every impulse of wrong in my heart,
How oft, though I would not, I wander from Thee,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]

3 I want to be humble and learn at Thy feet,
My trials and crosses with patience to meet,
I ask for a perfect submission to Thee,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]

4 The sorrow of others, O help me to share,
To seek out the lowly and make them my care,
To gather the lost ones and bring them to me,
O Saviour, I pray Thee, draw nearer to me. [Refrain]
