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.

Whither Shall I Go?

Whither should I, Jesus, go

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
