Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the hour of trial,
Jesus, plead for me;
lest by base denial
I depart from thee;
when thou seest me waver,
with a look recall,
nor for fear or favor
suffer me to fall.

2 With its witching pleasures
would this vain world charm,
or its sordid treasures
spread to work me harm,
bring to my remembrance
sad Gethsemane,
or, in darker semblance,
cross-crowned Calvary.

3 If with sore affliction
thou in love chastise,
pour thy benediction
on the sacrifice;
then, upon thine altar
freely offered up,
though the flesh may falter,
faith shall drink the cup.

4 When in dust and ashes
to the grave I sink,
while heav'n's glory flashes
o'er the shelving brink,
on thy truth relying
through that mortal strife,
Lord, receive me, dying,
to eternal life.
