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 your soul is weary with a load of care,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He your heart will gladden when you call in pray’r,
Steal away with Jesus awhile.

Refrain:
Steal away with Jesus awhile,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will hear you when you pray,
He will brighten all your way,
Steal away with Jesus awhile.

2 When your faith is tested by a foe unseen,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
If you’d gain the vict’ry, know a joy serene,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

3 When your friends forsake you in the hour of test,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will bear your burdens, give you peace and rest,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

4 If you’d know the value of a soul that’s lost,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will plainly show you what a price you cost,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

5 Trusting in the promises that ne’er can fail,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will surely answer, cause you to prevail,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]
