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 Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song
That came from the heart,
As we journey along,
Thro’ the dark vale of woe
To the city above,
Where the living may dwell
In the haven of love.

Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along;
Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along.

2 Take Jesus and live,
When thro’ shadows and gloom
We safely passed thro’,
Leading down to the tomb.
For his arm will uphold
All the weary, oppressed,
Till they enter in peace
To the mansions of rest. [Refrain]

3 Take Jesus and live,
With the beaming of light,
When darkness shall flee,
And the morn cometh bright.
When all earth’s woes are o’er,
And the sin-curse is past;
And we dwell with the pure
In life’s city at last. [Refrain]
