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

Coming to the Master

Representative Text

1 Oh, let me come to thee, dear, blessed Master,
Lead me the living way;
Change thou my night of peril and disaster,
To ever-glorious day.

Then, when these transient scenes of earth are ended,
And when time shall be no more,
My soul shall be by heav’nly hosts attended
To that bright shining shore.

2 Oh, let me bring to thee my care and sorrow,
Make me more truly thine,
And fit my spirit for that bright tomorrow,
Where joy shall e’er be mine. [Refrain]

3 Oh, let me feel thy gracious love so tender,
Thy changeless care for me;
Help me to make to thee a full surrender,
And be from sin set free. [Refrain]

4 Oh, let me be with thee when I am dying,
My weary heart at rest,
Up-borne above earth’s sorrow and its sighing,
In thee forever blest. [Refrain]
