Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
