Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 To the cross of Christ I cling;
Tho’ but faint my faith may be,
Yet this tho’t doth comfort bring:
Jesus holdeth me.
Holdeth me, He holdeth me;
Tho’ but faint my hold may be,
Yet this tho’t doth comfort bring:
Jesus holdeth me.

2 Low at Jesus’ feet I plead;
Broken tho’ my prayer may be,
Precious is the tho’t indeed:
Jesus pleads for me.
Pleads for me, He pleads for me;
Broken tho’ my prayer may be,
Precious is the tho’t indeed:
Jesus pleads for me.

3 Can I say I love the Lord?
Cold at times my love may be,
Yet how precious is the word:
Jesus loveth me.
Loveth me, He loveth me;
Cold at times my heart may be,
Yet how precious is the word:
Jesus loveth me.
