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 When you pass thro’ sorrow,
Jesus is standing close by;
He will cheer and comfort,
When he hears your cry.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus is standing close by,
He hears every heart-broken sigh;
Then take all you burdens to him in prayer,
And he will answer your cry.

2 Is your heart sin-burdened?
Jesus is standing close by;
He will speak your pardon,
When he hears your cry. [Refrain]

3 When the tempter tempts you,
Jesus is standing close by;
He will quickly help you,
When he hears your cry. [Refrain]

4 Do not be discouraged,
Jesus is standing close by;
He will safely lead you
To his home on high. [Refrain]
