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

Tag, det namnet Jesus med dig

Representative Text

1 Tag det namnet Jesus med dig,
Du, som vandrar sorgens fjät.
Tröst och glädje skall det ge dig:
Hvar du gå, tag med dig det.

Dyra namn! Sälla hamn!
Jordens hopp och himlens fröjd.
Dyra namn! sälla hamn!
Jordens hopp och himlens fröjd.

2 Dig till hjälp mot hvarje fara
Tag det namnet ständigt med!
Hotar frestelsernas skara,
Gå i Jesu hamn och bed! [Kör]

3 O, hvad fröjd det namnet bringar
Åt en fattig mänskosjäl!
O, hur ljuft det nament klingar!
Däri har jag allt mitt väl. [Kör]
