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.
1 Whither should I, Jesus go?
Whither from my Lord depart?
Can the world's vain glittering show,
Tear me from my Saviour's heart?
2 Joy, and peace, and love, alone,
In my Jesus can be found;
'Twas his last expiring groan,
To his love the rebel bound.
3 Whither from eternal life,
Should my wakened soul remove?
Carnal pleasures wage a strife,
But they're all subdued by love.
4 May I in they arms abide,
Jesus, Sun of Righteousness;
Never may I turn aside,
From the path of blessedness.
5 Hence insidious world, no more
Shall you charm me with your wiles;
Jesus, let me gain that shore,
Ever blessed with thy smiles.
6 There in endless joy to sing,
Jesu's all prevailing grace;
In the presence of my King,
May I find a happy place.
