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

9950. Every Hour I Need Thy Blessing

1 Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Every moment need Thy care,
Lord, to Thee I come confessing,
All the sins that me ensnare.
Bless the thoughts that come each moment,
Make them true and pure and fair,
Like to Thine our great atonement,
Beautiful beyond compare.

2 Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Daily need Thy wondrous love,
Love so tender, so protecting,
Coming from Thy throne above.
For Thy loving care and blessing,
Make me thankful day by day,
By my walk and daily living,
Praising Christ the Living Way.

3 Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Every moment need Thy care,
Until Thou my soul possessing,
Shall reflect Thine image there.
Then to Christ the King of Glory,
He who bought me with great price,
I shall sing the old, old story,
Christ my Lord, my sacrifice.
